‘We’re full’ says Austria: Foreign minister says it will stop all migrants at the border

Austria today demanded Macedonia ‘completely stop’ the flow of migrants across its border from Greece after saying it had nearly reached its ‘maximum’ intake.

Macedonia has erected metal fencing topped with razor wire along the border at the main crossing point from Greece for migrants crossing the Balkan peninsula en route to western Europe.

Austria, which received 90,000 asylum requests last year, has set a limit of less than half that number for this year.
