Swedish railway operator suspends trains from Denmark over inability to check IDs

Swedish transport operator SJ announced that it is halting all trains crossing the border from Denmark, as it cannot abide by the mandatory ID-checks introduced by the Swedish government in an attempt to limit the influx of illegal migrants and refugees.

The company explained that it has no capacities to carry out the checks quickly enough so it has no other choice but stop the services “until there is a working solution in place.”
