Hungary says is it extending a state of emergency to the whole country in response to the migrant crisis, including additional police and military patrols to stop migrants from entering.(/
Interior Minister Sandor Pinter says the measures announced Wednesday are needed because of uncertainty about where the people stranded across the Balkans will try to go after several countries announced only people with valid EU visas will be allowed through.
Hungary declared a state of emergency last year in several counties directly affected by the migrant flow and built fences on its borders with Serbia and Croatia which have greatly reduced the number of migrants entering the country in their efforts to reach Germany and other destinations in Western Europe.
Pinter said that a fence on the Romanian border is not necessary for now as Romania has pledged to prevent any migrants from reaching Hungary from there.
