For hours a group of Iraqis has been debating the next step as they stand on an abandoned train track that runs from northern Serbia near Kanjiza into southern Hungary, where police wait to take new arrivals to camps for registration.Night falls and amid the hesitation another Iraqi rushes toward the group waving his smartphone in the air.The choice weighs heavily, particularly for a young Iraqi couple traveling with their 4-month-old baby, Adam. For them, it is safer to choose the legal crossing because they do not know what they might face if they follow a smuggler under Hungary's newly built border fence aimed at keeping the migrants out.An Iraqi man, 65-year-old former civil servant Ali Younes whom an AFP team has seen several times since setting out on the route from northern Greece Saturday, walks toward the Hungarian border officials.The Iraqi group starts walking toward the official border crossing.The smuggler appears, a green-eyed Iraqi Kurd wearing a violet T-shirt and holding a branch.The Iraqis don't know what will happen next on their journey to Germany.
