Hungary is planning to send soldiers to help police patrol the border where thousands of refugees and migrants are arriving from Serbia every day, the report says.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said passing legislation to deploy the army would not be possible before September 20.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Hungary erected a razor-wire barrier along its border to Serbia that was designed to keep out refugees and migrants.
