Hungary Calls Military Reserves as Germany Urges Refugee Cap

Hungary called on its military reserves to help defend its borders while Germany proposed capping the number of people eligible for asylum in the European Union, as a divided bloc sought to contain an overwhelming number of refugees.

Hungary’s reserves will mostly take on duties inside military barracks, the Defense Ministry said in a statement on Saturday, after thousands of police and soldiers were sent to the southern border with Serbia to repel migrants. That sent refugees on an alternate route to Croatia, where authorities transported them back to Hungary, setting off a diplomatic firestorm with Hungarian and Croatian officials blaming each other for mishandling the crisis. Hungary took the migrants straight to the Austrian border.
