The latest developments as European governments rush to cope with the huge number of people moving across Europe. All times local (CET):
Austria has begun selective controls of vehicles at three main border crossings with Hungary as it tries to impose some order over the stream of refugees and other migrants from that country.
Police say the controls, in effect since early Wednesday, may be extended to 10 crossings, with vehicles being stopped selectively for checks of passports and other travel documents.
Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner has said that Syrians and others in danger in their home countries can continue to ask for asylum in Austria. She says they will also be free to travel on to Germany, as has been the case up to now.
