Police use tear gas at Austria-Italy border protest

Police used tear gas and demonstrators fired flares at a protest at the Brenner Pass on the border between Austria and Italy.

The demonstrators were protesting against the closure of European borders to refugees.

Austria has recently announced plans to introduce stricter border controls at Brenner, if more migrants start arriving there.
