Germany cites terror threat to extend border controls

Germany will extend border controls introduced amid the 2015 mass refugee and migrant influx by another six months until May 2018, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said Thursday.

He justified the move with the continued threat of terrorism, illegal migration inside Europe's passport-free Schengen zone, and the European Union's porous outside borders.
