Another Tunnel Discovered below Hungary-Serbia Border Fence

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.10.06.

Another tunnel has been discovered below the fence along the Serbian border in Csongrád-Csanád County, in southern Hungary, local police said on Monday.

The 19-metre tunnel leading from Serbian territory to Hungary was discovered by a police patrol during a field search near the town of Ásotthalom, on Monday afternoon, spokeswoman Szilvia Szabó said.

Earlier in the day the Hungarian authorities halted four groups of border violators, altogether 74 illegal immigrants in the region.

Police officers will hold an on-site inspection at the tunnel’s entry and guard it until it is buried.
