The Latest: Austria launches controls on the Hungarian border, may extend to others

Refugees queue up for a bus, as they arrive at the border between Austria and Hungary, Heiligenkreuz, Austria, late Tuesday Sept. 15, 2015. Austria's Interior Ministry says temporary border controls with Hungary will be in effect immediately after midnight Tuesday. The ministry says the measure could be extended to the country's borders with Slovenia, Italy and Slovakia, if needed. That reflects the possibility that migrants now streaming into Austria from Hungary could instead try to cross into Austria over those borders in large numbers.
