Austria will impose a daily quota on asylum claims and limit the flux of migrants travelling through the country.

Officials say 80 asylum applications will be accepted each day, and a maximum of 3,200 people will be allowed to travel through Austria.

The measures will be introduced on Friday.

The country has become a major transit route for migrants seeking to claim asylum in Germany.
