Danish police spokeswoman Anne Soe says about 100 migrants who arrived from Germany on Wednesday are refusing to leave a train in the Danish port city of Roedby. She says they don’t want to be registered in Denmark.
Under EU rules people seeking asylum should do so in the first EU country they enter and not travel from one country to another.
Many of the migrants say they want to go to Sweden, Norway or Finland, because they have relatives there or believe that the conditions for asylum-seekers are better.

WASHINGTON — The United States on Tuesday moved to head off preparations for a suspected Russian military buildup in Syria as Bulgaria agreed to an appeal from the Obama administration to shut its airspace to Russian transport planes. The planes’ destination was the Syrian port city of Latakia.

Washington (AFP) – At least three Russian military transport planes have landed in Syria in recent days, US officials said Tuesday, as Washington worries about the sort of assistance Moscow is providing to Damascus.
The aircraft have landed at the airport in Latakia on Syria’s Mediterranean coast over the past several days, US officials told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Two of the aircraft were giant Antonov-124 Condor planes and a third was a passenger flight, one of the officials said.

Pope Francis has won praise around the world for advancing a more humble, tolerant version of Catholicism, but there’s one country that he evidently hasn’t won over. Saudi Arabia banned the August issue of the National Geographic’s Arabic edition, whose cover featured Francis standing in the Sistine Chapel, due to what the magazine said were “cultural reasons.”
“Dear readers in Saudi Arabia, we apologize that you did not receive August’s magazine,” read a statement published on National Geographic’s Arabic-language Twitter account, from the editor-in-chief, Alsaad Omar al-Menhaly. “According to the distribution company, the magazine was refused entry for cultural reasons.”

(This article illustrates an excellent point. The constitution and rule of law has been suspended and is only used when it can be done for a deconstructionist purpose. Many bureaucrats and authority have defied the real law, and constitutional law, and faced no consequence if it was for a left wing cause like the abandonment of the 2n amendment. But when a woman asks that someone else’s name appears on a ‘marriage’ certificate for two men, she is actually jailed for some time without trial.)
Kim Davis, the Democrat Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of religious objections, was ordered to jail for contempt of court last Thursday. She suggested a compromise of removing her name from the licenses, but Federal District Court Judge David Bunning wouldn’t even grant that reasonable compromise.
Contrast this with Cathy Lanier, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, refusing to issue concealed weapons permits to people unless they can arbitrarily show a “good reason,” nothing required by law. A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction in May stopping her from denying the permits, although notably he did not send Lanier to jail for contempt.
(We were savages back in my day. I recall when a citizen helped a policeman catch a criminal who was running from them, they got an honorable mention in the papers and maybe even the key to the city. Kicking the girl, that seems like a bad thing, but tripping an illegal running from the police, well that used to be highly commendable and brave. Lots of video at site showing her bravery in the face of hundreds of illegals fleeing the authorities)

Military prosecutors have reached into a section of military law seldom used since World War II in the politically fraught case against Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier held prisoner for years by the Taliban after leaving his post in Afghanistan.
Observers wondered for months if Bergdahl would be charged with desertion after the deal brokered by the U.S. to bring him home. He was — but he was also charged with misbehavior before the enemy, a much rarer offense that carries a stiffer potential penalty in this case.
