Thousands of refugees reach Germany after Hungary & Austria surrender to exodus
After weeks of travel, hardships and uncertainty, some 8,000 exhausted refugees have finally made it to Germany. The mass exodus via Austria came after Hungary gave up on its attempts to stop the progress of asylum seekers and bused them to its northern border.
Arriving by trains from Salzburg, Austria on Saturday evening, the refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Eritrea were welcomed by cheering crowds. Upon their arrival Germans offered small toys to refugee kids as they made their way through the terminal.
