A record number of refugees streamed into EU member state Hungary from Serbia on August 24, police said, just days before Hungary completes a border fence to keep out migrants. A total of 2,093 migrants, the highest ever daily total, crossed the border near the Hungarian town of Roszke, a police statement said. They were part of a wave of around 7,000 refugees whose journey to the European Union had been blocked last week when Macedonia declared a state of emergency and closed its borders after being overwhelmed by the huge influx of people, amid Europe's worst migration crisis since World War II.

Syrian refugees are seen onboard the passenger ship “Eleftherios Venizelos” at the port on the Greek island of Kos. A passenger ship carrying Syrian refugees set sail from the Greek island of Kos heading for the mainland as authorities struggle to cope with a wave of arrivals. The Greek coast guard’s office said the ship, which has acted as a floating accommodation and registration centre since Sunday, was heading for the northern port of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second biggest city.

A migrant hugs his family after safetly arriving to the shores of Kos island from Turkey on Tuesday. Authorities on the island of Kos have been so overwhelmed that the government sent a ferry to serve as a temporary centre to issue travel documents to Syrian refugees -- among some 7,000 migrants stranded on the island of about 30,000 people. The early hours are the safest time for migrants travelling from Turkey to the Greek islands just across the water, which have seen a huge influx of refugees escaping the civil war in Syria and chaos in Afghanistan since the beginning of this year.
