STRASBOURG, France - The European Union moved Tuesday to prolong border controls in the passport-free Schengen area for three months, after introducing them as an emergency measure to cope with last year's massive migrant influx.



The European Commission, the EU executive, said it recommended for "a period of a further three months" the extension of checks at the borders of Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
