Austria’s Kurz warns Europe of a new migrant ‘catastrophe’

Austria’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has warned of a migrant ‘catastrophe’ similar to the 2015 crisis if Europe does not agree a common response. ‘We can’t wait until we have a catastrophe like the one in 2015,’ Kurz said, referring to the migrant crisis of 2015-16, which saw more than 150,000 people seek asylum in Austria, a country of 8.7 million.
