Germany ‘to start border controls’
14 Septembar 2015, Nirapad News: Germany is to reintroduce some form of controls on its border with Austria to cope with the influx of migrants.
German and Austrian media report, according to the BBC.
It is not clear what measures would be introduced.
More than 13,000 migrants arrived into Munich alone on Saturday. Germany’s vice-chancellor said the country was ‘at the limit of its capabilities’.
Germany’s Bild newspaper and Austria’s Kronen Zeitung said controls would be in place on the Bavaria-Austria border.
Germany expects 800,000 migrants to arrive this year.
The German Interior Minister, Thomas de Maiziere, is expected to make an announcement in the coming hours.
Last month, de Maiziere said the Schengen agreement, which allows free movement between a large number of European countries, could be suspended.
Kronen Zeitung said that Bavarian police will begin to carry out checks ‘to determine immediately who is entitled to asylum’, but it is not clear how such checks would be made.
