New Hungarian police contingents have left for Serbia and Macedonia, the national police headquarters said. A total of 30 police have left for Macedonia and 15 to Serbia.
In addition to border patrol, they will also be patrolling minor roads inland in Macedonia and Serbia in order to stop human smugglers.
Both contingents have been equipped with SUVs, night-vision equipment and hand-held heat cameras. The contingent in Macedonia will also support border protection efforts with mobile heat cameras, the statement said.
