Austria's Interior Ministry says temporary border controls with Hungary will be in effect immediately after midnight Tuesday. The ministry says the measure could be extended to the country's borders with Slovenia, Italy and Slovakia, if needed. That reflects the possibility that migrants now streaming into Austria from Hungary could instead try to cross into Austria over those borders in large numbers. (AP Photo/Manu Brabo)

Small groups of migrants are continuing to sneak into Hungary from Serbia, a day after the country sealed its border and began arresting asylum-seekers trying to breach the new razor-wire barrier.

Early Wednesday, police on horseback surrounded a group of 14 Afghans, including five young girls and an elderly woman, in a field close to the fence made up of three rolls of razor wire.

Small groups of young men also walked along roads leading away from the border. One asked a passing reporter: "Is this the way to Budapest?"

The evidence of crossings came a day after Hungarian police arrested at least 174 migrants for illegally breaching the border or damaging the fence.
