"Because nobody knows what will happen tomorrow. Maybe there will be three, four, five thousand migrants staying at the border at the same time or trying to cross the border in different places... We have to be decisive."Reporting by Bart Meijer, Gabriela Baczynska, Benoit Van Overstraeten; editing by Philip Blenkinsop headtopics.com
