MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Sweden has been struggling to provide enough beds for the record number of refugees crossing into the country from Germany and elsewhere, the media said, citing Swedish authorities.
"The urgent problem today is that the number of asylum seekers is increasing faster than the number of accommodation places. Sweden today can no longer guarantee accommodation places," Johansson said, as cited by the media.
"Last week we saw a decline [of refugee inflow], but now the past few days, we see an increase," Johansson added.
Earlier in the day, Sweden's Migration Board said that more than 2,000 asylum seekers were expected to to try to travel to Sweden from the city of Rostock in northern Germany, setting a new daily record.
