AUSTRIA TO INTRODUCE CONTROLS ON BRENNER PASS IN MAY


From The Local:

Austria’s new Interior Minister confirmed over the weekend that continuous border controls will be introduced on the border with Italy at the end of May.

Austrian authorities have been reinforcing the Brenner border point with Italy in recent weeks in preparation for what the government expects will be a new wave of refugees and migrants making their way to central Europe via Italy.

Arrivals in Italy are believed to be on the verge of spiking upwards because of the closing down of the migrant route to central Europe via Greece and the Balkans.
