BERLIN - German police said on Saturday officials were expecting up to 10,000 refugees during the day after Austria and Germany agreed with Hungary to allow migrants to cross their borders.

"We don't have reliable figures yet, but we are expecting between 5,000 and 10,000 refugees today," police spokesman Stefan Sonntag told Reuters on Saturday.

He added officials were still in the progress of coordinating in order to cope with the number of refugees.

A train from Austria carrying several hundred refugees is expected to arrive in Munich around noon.
