    The security official noted that 30,000 of the migrants arrived in Germany this weekend alone.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) – Over 83,000 undocumented migrants have crossed the Austrian border into Germany since the beginning of September, a spokesperson for the country's federal police said Monday.

    "The Federal Police registered over 83,000 illegal entries through the German-Austrian border since the start of the month," the spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

    Germany suspended its railway services from Austria and reintroduced border controls on Sunday after some 13,000 migrants arrived in the southern city of Munich the previous night.

    The Austrian Federal Railways OEBB announced that train traffic between the two nations had been restored early Monday. The Vienna-based railway system recommended that passengers allow additional time for further checks by German authorities at the Austrian-German border.

    Interior ministers of the European Union are meeting later on Monday to address what Brussels terms the bloc’s greatest migration crisis since World War II. The European Commission has proposed to accept 160,000 asylum seekers throughout the member states.
