Hundreds of migrants cut through Hungary's border fence over past days
By Krisztina Than MORAHALOM, Hungary (Reuters) - Police detained 501 migrants over the weekend who cut their way through Hungary's steel border fence, the highest number since Hungary sealed off its southern borders in mid-October. Prime Minister Viktor Orban has boosted his public support with a tough stance on migration. The fence diverted the flow of migrants away from Hungary toward Croatia and Slovenia last year when hundreds of thousands crossed the Balkans en route to Austria and western Europe.
