Hungary Suspends Key EU Asylum Rule

Hungary has suspended a key EU rule that says it must take back asylum seekers who first enter Hungary but travel on to other countries.
A government spokesman said the decision had been made because Hungary is overburdened by illegal immigration.
The announcement comes just days after Hungary announced a plan to erect a border fence against migrants.
Hungarian officials say that more than 60,000 people have entered the country illegally this year.
A spokeswoman for the European Commission added that Hungary had said that the suspension was for a "technical reason".
