Swedish government says to extend border controls from Nov. 12

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden will extend controls at its borders from Nov. 12 lasting until May next year as a result of the heightened security situation, the government said on Thursday.

“The terror-threat level is still at a heightened level and our overall judgement is that controls at Sweden’s borders are still needed,” Home Affairs Minister Mikael Damberg said in a statement.
