BERLIN – The latest in the odyssey of hundreds of thousands of migrants crossing Europe in search of a new life. All times local.
Bavaria's governor is pressing Chancellor Angela Merkel to complain to her Austrian counterpart about an uncoordinated flow of migrants toward Germany's border.
Governor Horst Seehofer, who has been the most prominent domestic critic of Merkel's decision last month to allow in migrants who had piled up in Hungary, was quoted Tuesday as telling the daily Passauer Neue Presse: "This behavior by Austria is burdening neighborly relations. We can and must not treat each other this way."
Seehofer said it's up to Merkel, who made last month's decision along with Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, to speak to the Austrians.
Most migrants who have arrived in Austria from Hungary and more recently Slovenia have simply continued to Germany. All of Germany's border with Austria is in Bavaria.
