Czech reintroduces border controls on Slovak border at midnight

Czech authorities temporarily resume controls at the border with Slovakia due to a sharp increase in illegal immigration. The border controls announced by Prime Minister Petr Fiala earlier this week are due to come into effect on Wednesday evening. 500 police officers and her 60 customs officers will be deployed to guard the border, and people will only be allowed through 27 official checkpoints. Interior Minister Vit Lakshan said the move was temporary and would be evaluated within 10 days. SLOVAKIA said it respects the decision, but prefers to discuss it at EU level as it affects other European countries.
