COPENHAGEN, September 9. /TASS/. Railway service between Denmark and Germany is held for an indefinite period due to Danish police order, Denmark’s railroad company (DSB) said on Wednesday.
The decision was taken by Danish police as the inflow of illegal migrants from Germany to Denmark increased.
Europe has been at the epicenter of the unprecedented migration crisis. In the past months, the flow of migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East, and particularly Syria, to the European countries has increased.
In the recent weeks, the migrants have been storming border fences, trains and ferry boats. According to the European Commission, since the start of the year, more than 400,000 migrants have officially applied for asylum in 28 EU member-states. The flow of illegal migrants may reach 1 million people, a five-fold increase compared with last year.
