The Danish government Wednesday decided to extend the temporary border control on the country’s border to Germany by 20 days to Feb. 3, the Integration Ministry said in a press release.

 

The government had initially implemented a 10 days temporary border control as an reaction to a similar step from neighbouring Sweden.

 

“The assessment is that there is still a risk that a large number of illegal immigrants accumulate in Denmark,” the ministry said.
