Munich, Sep 6 (IANS) Over 3,500 refugees, a majority of them from conflict-ridden Syria, have arrived at Munich from Hungary via Austria, and another 3,000 are expected to arrive on Sunday.

According to German police, three special trains with refugees are expected to arrive on Sunday, Xinhua news agency reported.

“We prepare ourselves for 5,000 to 7,000 refugees,” said Christoph Hillenbrand, head of district government of Upper Bavaria.

Hungary decided on Friday night to bring refugees stuck at Budapest by bus to the Austrian border. Austria and Germany then declared their willingness to accept them.
