'First of all, I'm a human being' - Former Prime Minister Shelters Refugees

The Hungarian authorities have reopened the capital's international railway station to migrants after a 36-hour stand-off. But the former Prime Minister of Hungary, Ferenc Gyurcsany, goes further. Mr Gyurcsany and his family take-in groups of refugees who spend a night or two at his home. It's all part of an initiative set up by a local volunteer group.
