A masked man holding an Islamic State flag took a video of himself entering Germany to show just how non-existent border controls are in the country.
The Danish man crossed Germany’s northern border to Denmark in broad daylight. The border is completely unguarded and he easily makes it into the country just days after the country was struck by a major terror attack.
Borders within the 26-state Schengen zone are open to make Europe more accessible to citizens. Anis Amri — the alleged attacker behind the truck attack in Berlin which killed 12 and injured 48 — managed to make it from Germany to Italy despite being the most wanted man in Europe. He was killed at a routine police check Friday in Milan.
The attack has put Germany’s immigration policies and problems with radicalization in the spotlight. (RELATED: Berliners ComeTo Terms With Terrorism Being The New Normal)
Chancellor Angela Merkel promised to “press hard” with examining if certain policies need to change.
“We will press ahead with examining whether certain state measures need to be changed,” Merkel said during a press conference Friday. “The Amri case raises lots of questions. Not only questions about the deed but also about the time leading up to it ever since he arrived in Germany.”
