VIENNA (AP) — Austrian police say they found 201 migrants without proper travel documents on a train bound for Munich from the Hungarian capital of Budapest.

Police spokeswoman Michaela Rossmann said the men, women and children were intercepted early Monday. She said some likely applied for asylum while others who didn't would have been charged with illegally staying in Austria, given written orders to leave and then allowed to continue their trip.

Neither she nor the Interior Ministry had further details. The daily Kronen Zeitung said the men, women and 27 children come from 13 nations. It said most of them were from Syria and Afghanistan.
