ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Dozens of migrants, carrying their belongings in backpacks, crossed over the border from Serbia to Hungary on Tuesday (August 25). Many of them have fled the conflict in Syria. For many migrants, the final destinations are Germany and other rich western European countries. Hungary is part of the European Union's Schengen zone of passport-free travel and borders non-EU Serbia and Ukraine. It has registered over 100,000 migrants so far this year, compared with 43,000 in all 2014. On Monday (August 24), police in Hungary registered 2,093 migrants, the highest daily tally so far this year. Hungary wants more European Union funds to cope with the worst refugee crisis since World War Two.
