VIENNA (AP) – Thousands of people seeking asylum in western Europe pushed through police lines at Austria’s main border crossing with Hungary and set off on foot on the highway toward Vienna. They began their march after rail traffic was sharply reduced due to overcrowding, despite moves by authorities to compensate for that at the Nickelsdorf cross.
Buses and taxis were called to Nickelsdorf to take migrants to the Austrian capital, the main jump-off point for Germany and other western EU nations for the tens of thousands who have crossed from Hungary over the past week.

The floodwaters have receded somewhat, but a vast area of the Japanese city of Joso remains inundated by a sea of brown water.
As the sun came out shocked residents and officials began to take stock of the damage wrought the previous day when a rain swollen river burst through its eastern bank, pouring in water so rapidly that many people could only clamber upstairs or to their roofs to escape.
