Denmark blocks rail and road links with Germany to stop refugee flow

Denmark has closed road and rail links to Germany in a bid to block refugees from heading north to Sweden.

Police tried in vain to persuade people to move on after hundreds stayed put on a northbound train.

Authorities say they were reluctant to use force.

With the situation worsening, the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said he didn’t want to see a repeat of what happened to refugees in Budapest.
