While the European migration crisis shows no signs of abating, Denmark’s Intelligence agency on Tuesday said that it doesn’t believe Islamist militants are taking advantage of the migration flow to sneak in terrorists into the West.

According to the Associated Press, the acting head of Denmark’s Security and Intelligence Service Finn Borch Andersen acknowledged that there could be “people who sympathise with militant Islamism among the refugees”, adding that “it is associated with high risks” for individuals to be spotted during a journey across the European continent.”

Meanwhile, Czech Republic leaders have reiterated that they’re determined to reject the plan for compulsory quotas to distribute refugees across the 28-nation EU bloc.

Hungary is building fences on borders with Serbia, Romania and Croatia to halt the flow of refugees headed towards more prosperous EU countries like Germany and other richer nations.
