AYS NEWS DIGEST 16/9 — Refugee at Adavasci Transit Center on the border with Hungary reveals horrid conditions.

Pictures and video footage were sent to AYS, revealing the squalor and the shameful conditions that refugees are forced to endure. They are unable to go elsewhere, as they are waiting to cross the border into Hungary, and not being present for the nightly roll call means losing the chance to make the crossing. Residents also abuse rampant alcohol and drug abuse, sexual harassment, and mishandling by guards.
