Police in Hungary have arrested a Czech man they accuse of helping a group of Serbian nationals to enter France illegally. The Hungarian news agency MTI reported that five of the eight Serbians were children. The Hungarian/Serbian border is a frequent target for people trying to enter the EU illegally. On the same day border guards arrested one Serb attempting to take five Albanians, including two children, to Italy, and 995 individuals have been arrested for the same offence so far this year – almost as many as for the whole of 2008.
