Afghan migrant Zaher Rajawi can't believe his bad luck.Hundreds of migrants arrive daily to Serbia's border with Hungary, packing inside a makeshift settlement without toilets or showers and just one tap of running water as Hungary introduced new measures meant to try to keep them out of the EU.In what appears to be another refugee crisis in the making in Europe, the numbers are surging at this camp and other ones on Serbia's border with EU country Hungary. The numbers have been growing since last week, when Hungary introduced forced deportations of migrants caught within 8 kilometers of border fences. That basically means Hungary wants to all but halt the flow across its border, and empty its refugees camps by returning migrants back to Serbia.Hungarian authorities have also prevented 1,359 migrants from crossing right at the border in the same time period.The U.N. refugee agency says the number of refugees and migrants on the Serbian side of the border with Hungary has doubled to above 1,300 since last week – the majority of them women and children.
