08-03-2016 updated

Around 200 Czech police officers on Tuesday took part in exercises near the border with Austria meant to simulate the influx of a large number of refugees. The exercises went on in the village of Dolní Dvořiště in South Bohemia, the town of Mikulov in South Moravia and in the countryside, with officers testing registration centres that would function in the same way as those that now exist in Macedonia and Hungary, said the Czech police president, Tomáš Tuhý.
