Hungary sends new police unit to Serbia

The Hungarian police force has sent a 35-strong unit to Serbia to assist local forces in border protection, the police's official website said on Tuesday.

The Hungarian officers will mostly patrol the border to prevent and investigate illegal border entries, and will cooperate with local forces in arresting people smugglers and illegal migrants, the statement said.

The contingent will also patrol roads farther from the border, it added.

The Hungarian officers will use their own equipment, which includes off-road vehicles, night vision devices and mobile infra-red cameras, said.
