Hungary's government has complained about the French foreign minister's latest remarks on how it's dealing with refugees. Laurent Fabius described as scandalous the attitude of a number of eastern European countries, particulary Hungary because of a barrier it's building along its border.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called on other European countries to do more, saying her country alone is expected to receive some 800,000 refugees this year.
The European Union has called for an emergency summit to discuss solutions to what it calls an unprecedented crisis.
But will Europeans reach a common solution for the crisis? And would restricting free movement across the continent be the answer?
