Romanian border police tighten controls as a preventative measure result in seven kilometer traffic jam entering into Hungary. This comes as hundreds of thousands make their way across Europe in search of safety and a better life.

Romanian border police have tightened up controls in response to possible threats, leading to long lines of waiting vehicles at the country’s borders.

The Romanian police said border controls had been temporarily increased “to prevent people from conflict zones who could carry out activities that are a real threat to internal and foreign security.” It did not elaborate on the possible threats.

Digi24 television station reported the increased controls began late Thursday and it was taking drivers more than three hours to cross the border crossing at Nadlac into Hungary. Lines stretched for seven kilometers.
