This afternoon, some 2o0 refugees from Georgia, Ingushetia and Chechnya got so sick of the horrible conditions in a Polish refugee camp — the rotten food, the non-existent medical care — that they got on a train bound for Dresden, Germany — and took it hostage. They told the driver that they were now going to the European Human Rights Court in Strasbourg to lodge a complaint about their treatment in Poland. Not only that, they said, they were NOT paying their train fare.

(The train was just cleared by authorities.)
