Germany sends a few hundred migrants back to Austria daily: police
VIENNA (Reuters) - Germany is refusing more and more migrants entry at its southern border, sending a few hundred back to Austria every day since the beginning of the month, Austrian police said on Monday.

Attacks on women in Cologne and other German cities on New Year's Eve have prompted hundreds of complaints, with police suspicion resting on asylum seekers, putting pressure on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open-door migrant policy.

Many of those rejected at the border have no valid documents or refuse to apply for asylum in Germany, arguing they want to travel further north to countries such as Sweden, a spokeswoman for the police in the province of Upper Austria said.

Austria is the last country on the way to Germany after the so-called Balkan route that hundreds of thousands have taken to flee violence and destruction in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

"Since the New Year, it's been about 200 a day, trending higher," the spokeswoman said of the migrants being sent back.
