Ger­mans strict on pass­ports

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - NEWS -

– The Ger­man gov­ern­ment says it will ex­tend pass­port con­trols along some of its na­tional bor­ders for another six months, start­ing in Novem­ber.

Ger­man In­te­rior Min­is­ter Thomas de Maiziere said in a writ­ten state­ment yes­ter­day the au­thor­i­ties would con­tinue con­trols along the Ger­man-Aus­trian bor­der and on flights com­ing in from Greece.

De Maizere said the con­trols would con­tinue due to “a con­sid­er­able amount of il­le­gal mi­gra­tion” and the height­ened se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in Europe. – AP
