Migrant crisis: German interior minister news briefing

Germany's Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere is holding a news conference on the escalating migrant crisis.

It comes amid media reports that the country is to reintroduce some form of controls on its border with Austria to cope with the influx of migrants.

More than 13,000 migrants arrived into Munich on Saturday alone, and Germany's vice-chancellor said the country was "at the limit of its capabilities".
