Austria seeks to block refugees, migrants from entering

Austria wants to reduce the number of asylum seekers crossing its border to zero.

The government of Austria wants refugees to register in the country they are coming from, meaning a refugee would need permission from the country they are fleeing.

Migration will be high on the agenda at the European Union leaders’ meeting in Salzburg.
