Pictures: Hungary Closes Rail Station

Hungarian police closed Budapest's main international station Keleti on Tuesday after thousands of migrants and asylum seekers arrived hoping to reach Austria and Germany, reports AFP.

Migrants were told to leave the station who began to chant: "Germany! Germany! We want to leave!" with some holding their babies in the air. Hungarian police also lined the main entrance of the station and it is not known how long the station will be closed for.

Meanwhile, thousands of migrants and asylum seekers arrived in Austria on Monday as both countries struggle to contain the increasing numbers of people without visas attempting to travel onwards.
