Germany says Austria is ‘out of order’ over migrant crisis and accuses country of shuttling refugees to its border under the cover of darkness

Germany has accused Austria of driving refugees to its border after dark and says its handing of migrants is ‘out of order’.

‘The behaviour of Austria in recent days was out of order,’ German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told a news conference in Berlin today, suggesting Austria was helping migrants cross undetected.

‘We observed that refugees, without warning and after dark, were being driven to the German border without any provisions or forethought.’
