Anti-migrant demo in Finnish border town over refugee influx

Refugees walk through the pouring rain from a public transport centre to the Lappia-building refugee reception centre in Tornio, northwestern Finland, on September 18, 2015Several dozen demonstrators formed a “human wall” and briefly blocked a border point in a northern Finnish town Saturday in protest at a dramatic spike in the number of asylum seekers crossing over from Sweden, a local official said. Waving Finnish flags, protesters “from the extreme-right” formed a line in Tornio urging refugees and migrants to stay away, said local councillor Peter Waara from the adjacent Swedish town of Haparanda, where a counter-demonstration took place. Finland expects a total of 25,000 to 30,000 asylum seekers this year, seven to eight times as many as in 2014.
