    Refugees held in Hungary without adequate mental care access

    Refugees detained in Hungary are facing an increasingly desperate situation.

    Men, women and children are being held in detention centres with little access to medical and mental care.

    Aid agencies say as many as 70 percent could be suffering from some form of trauma.

    That's despite a European Court of Human Rights' ruling on Tuesday that declared the forced detention of asylum seekers illegal.

    Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull has this report from the Bekescsaba detention camp, on Hungary's border with Romania.
