BUDAPEST, 9 October 2015 (IRIN) - Abdul says he fled Iraq after his father was killed by so-called Islamic State (IS). But now Abdul is in handcuffs.

The 18-year-old was caught by the Hungarian authorities crossing the Serbian border, which was sealed off by a razor-wire fence in September. He is being charged with breaking a new law that makes it a criminal offence to cross or vandalise the fence.

Less than a week after being detained, he is in court in the nearby town of Szeged, breaking down as he talks about his father’s death.
