Austria will deploy army at the borders to control the influx of people who are entering Austria from Hungary. It said that it would start arresting illegal migrants starting Tuesday.

Hungary has also sent hundreds of new policemen to its southern borders with Serbia to handle the migrant crisis.

Meanwhile, Germany has admitted that the influx of millions of refugees from Syria, Iran, and Afghanistan is causing chaos and has forced it to reverse its decision about accepting refugees.

Luxembourg minister Jean Asselborn, who is chairing the EU talks about re-distribution of the 160,000 migrants said: “We have to pull ourselves together today; if not, Europe will be torn apart.”

Nine people were hurt, including two children, when Croatian border police fired at a van full of illegal migrants that refused to stop.

Police said they discovered 29 people inside the van after it crossed the border from Bosnia.

“Our priority is the fight against organized crime and protection of the state border and not against the migrants.

The driver fled into the woods, and police were searching for him.

The two wounded children were recovering in a hospital, and officials said their lives were not in danger.

“We are sorry about the children being injured in this incident,” Zadar town police chief Anton Drazina said. “Our priority is the fight against organized crime and protection of the state border and not against the migrants, but against the criminals who are unfortunately endangering the lives of the migrants by their smuggling activities.”
