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.”
