German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere on Sunday announced the immediate but temporary reestablishment of border controls, beginning along the Austrian border, to halt the waves of refugees that are arriving via the neighboring country.

At a press conference held in Berlin, De Maiziere noted that the aim of the measure, which he said was "urgently" required for security reasons, is to halt the flow of asylum seekers and once again implement orderly migration procedures on the border.
