Migrants in Hungary - level 2

Migrants in Hungary - level 2

15-09-2015 15:00

A group of several hundred migrants decided to walk from Budapest to try to get to Austria. They walked on a national road about 20 km outside of Budapest and chanted, "We want bus!" Local police watched them.

Meanwhile, another thousand migrants crossed into Hungary from Serbia. They spent the night near the border before moving to Budapest and Western European countries. Hungarian police in riot gear guarded the group. The migrants had no food or water, but they survived on corn from nearby fields.

Difficult words: chant (to say/sing something together over and over again), riot (a violent protest), gear (equipment)

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
