Austria's Faymann likens Orban's refugee policies to Nazi deportations
by Michelle Martin and Anna McIntosh
Austria's chancellor criticized Hungary for its handling of the refugee crisis on Saturday, likening the country's policies to Nazi deportations during the Holocaust as refugees complained of their treatment in the eastern European country.
Thousands of refugees are crossing the border to Hungary, an eastern outpost of Europe's passport-free Schengen zone, every day, and many are traveling on to the continent's more prosperous west and north in what is Europe's worst refugee crisis since the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s.
Refugees continued to stream into Germany, favored for its generous welfare system and relatively liberal asylum laws. At Munich's main train station around 9,200 arrived by early evening and authorities said they would struggle to cope.
