Hungarian MEP says 'pig heads' would scare off migrants

George Schopflin, an MEP from Hungary's ruling Fidesz party, has said that putting "pig heads" on the Hungarian-Serbian border fence would help to deter Muslim migrants from entering the country. “Human images are haram … pig’s head would deter more effectively", he tweeted. Andrew Stroehlein from NGO Human Rights Watch said: “Your words are disgusting. I would expect that from anonymous neo-Nazi trolls but you’re an MEP. Act like one."
