A Denmark police spokeswoman Anne Soe said that the migrants do not want to get registered in Denmark, reported Times of India.

As per the EU rules, the migrants who are arriving in Europe must register themselves in the first country they land in and should not travel from one country to another.

Many migrants are intent upon going to Sweden, Norway, or Finland because they have relatives there. Some want to travel to those countries because they believe the conditions for refugees are better there.

When around 300 migrants who had come to Denmark from Germany and were housed in a school started walking towards the north, the Danish police blocked the highway on the Jutland peninsula, as per TOI report.

Danish officials have reached out to Sweden to make an exception to the EU rule since most refugees do not wish to stay in Denmark. But, Sweden has maintained that the country will stand by the EU rule.
