After being forced off trains by Hungarian police, more than 1,000 refugees decided to travel from Budapest to Vienna the only way they can – on foot. Since trains are still prevented from leaving Keleti station, which has become a refugee camp, refugees determined to leave decided to walk all the 134 miles to Austria. They are men and women of all ages, children, babies, and several people who are disabled or who arrived injured in Hungary. The local police unsuccessfully tried to stop them outside Budapest city limits, after they crossed the famous Elisabeth Bridge. Further up along the way, Hungarian citizens are offering them food and help, encouraging them to go on. One of the men leading the march is carrying an EU flag.
