'Austria, Germany ready to receive Hungary migrants'

Vienna: Austria and Germany have agreed to receive thousands of migrants due to arrive at the Hungarian border in the coming hours, Austria's Chancellor Werner Faymann said early today.

Faymann told Austria's APA agency that he had informed Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban of the decision "in consultation" with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

He said it was motivated by "the current emergency at the Hungarian border".

Late yesterday Hungary said it was laying on buses to ferry desperate refugees who had set off on foot for the Austrian border after being stranded for days in Budapest's main railway station.
