Migrant children sleep on the floor on the train from Budapest to Munich at the Austrian - Hungarian border in Hegyeshalom on August 31, 2015Trains packed with migrants arrived in Austria's capital where 20,000 people turned out to show their support for the new arrivals, as Europe struggled to cope with the biggest movement of people since World War II. Police looked on as hundreds of migrants -- many of them without visas -- pulled into Vienna's Westbahnhof station late in the evening before boarding trains to the Austrian city of Salzburg or on to Munich in southern Germany. Authorities in Budapest have allowed the migrants, who had been stuck for days in makeshift refugee camps at the city's stations, to board trains for their ultimate destinations in northern Europe.

UNITAR-UNOSAT satellite images of the Temple of Bel in Syria's city of Palmyra on August 27, 2015 (L) and rubble seen at the temple's location on August 31, 2015 (R)The most famed temple in Syria's Palmyra has been blown up, the United Nations said, showing satellite images of the damage as the Islamic State group presses a campaign to tear down the treasured heritage site. A powerful blast in the ancient city had raised fears the militant jihadists had escalated their push to rid Syria of what they view as un-Islamic artifacts after they destroyed the smaller Baal Shamin temple last week. "We can confirm destruction of the main building of the Temple of Bel as well as a row of columns in its immediate vicinity," the UN training and research agency UNITAR said, providing satellite images from before and after the explosion on Sunday.
