BERLIN – The latest on the stream of people crossing Europe in search of safety or a better life. All times local.
Austrian officials say thousands of refugees and other migrants have spent the night outdoors in cold fall weather as authorities struggle to keep up with the steady flow.
Austrian broadcaster ORF reported Monday that facilities for migrants along the border with Germany are already full, and Germany has been permitting fewer to cross because its own tents and buildings are also overflowing.
ORF reports some 2,500 people had to sleep outside overnight near the border town of Achleiten; 700 close to Braunau; and 300 more near Kollerschlag.
Austrian authorities are working to build more temporary shelters, but a large tent being erected is expected to be available only on Tuesday.
