Luxembourg: Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said Saturday the plight of migrants stranded in Hungary, now being taken into his country, was a "wake up call" for Europe.

"This has to be an eye opener how messed up the situation in Europe is now. I hope that this serves as a wake up call that (the situation) cannot continue," Kurz said as he arrived for informal talks with his EU peers dominated by the deepening refugee crisis.
