Austria is about to increase its border controls to the east and to the south, the Austrian Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka informed on Wednesday. The stricter measures will be applied to the country's borders with Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Italy and they will be secured by the police and army corps. According to Sobotka, this is a reaction to the increasing number of illegal migrants coming into the country precisely through the four above-mentioned border crossings.
