Thousands of refugees have begun marching from Budapest, prompting Austria after Germany and Austria to announce they would begin allowing refugees into their countries. The refugees had been stuck in Budapest for weeks after the Hungarian government refused to allow them to board western-bound trains.
A 51 year-old Pakistani man collapsed around 800 meters from the train station and later died, despite medics attempts to revive him. It has been reported that he fell and hit his head in an attempt to escape the police. Hungary relented and provided buses for the refugees to make the journey.
