Migrants Assault Hungarian Trucker In France
A Hungarian truck driver was treated in hospital in France after he was physically assaulted by migrants, Foreign Ministry press chief Tamás Menczer said on Thursday.

The truck driver’s wife told M1 News that her husband had been resting in a car park on the motorway leading to Calais, then when he got out of his cabin was attacked by four people, and was hit with an iron bar.

He climbed back into the cabin but his assailants smashed the window and continued to strike him, she said. Eventually a French truck driver called the police.

The attack victim received medical treatment at a hospital and was taken to another hospital 100 kilometres away for further medical tests.
