VIENNA (Sputnik) – German-Austrian railway traffic was restored Monday, a day after Germany suspended service from Austria amid a major migrant influx, the rail operator announced.
"Train traffic between Germany and Austria has been resumed at 7:00 am [05:00 GMT]," the Austrian Federal Railways OEBB said.
The Vienna-based railway system said its passengers must allow additional time for further checks by German authorities at the Austrian-German border.
Up to 13,000 migrants from crisis-torn regions of the Middle East and North Africa arrived on Saturday alone.
