Hungarian prosecutors charged Thursday a Syrian migrant with committing an "act of terror" during fierce clashes with border forces last year, in the first case of its kind under tough new laws.The Sept. 16 disturbances occurred when several dozen migrants demanded to be allowed to cross Hungary's southern border with Serbia at Roszke, a day after the frontier was sealed with razor wire.The incident left around 15 police and 100-150 migrants injured.Critics including opposition parties and rights groups say a vaguely defined threat could allow the government to suddenly clamp down on civil liberties in the 10-million-strong EU member state.
