Austria lets in migrants unhindered despite Germany checks

Thousands of migrants walked unhindered across the border into Austria from Hungary on Monday, where the frontier was kept open despite Germany’s sudden reintroduction of checks. Police said emergency accommodation was filling up for migrants, some of whom have been housed in tents and sleeping in car parks while Vienna decides whether to keep its border open or follow Berlin’s lead and act to curb arrivals. An Austrian police spokesman said that by mid-morning, 6,000 to 7,000 people had arrived since midnight, after 14,000 on Sunday, the highest daily figure yet.
