Fortress Denmark wants to send its asylum seekers outside Europe
Denmark already has one of Europe's harshest stances on immigration, but the wealthy Scandinavian country is set to adopt legislation on Thursday enabling it to open asylum centres outside Europe where applicants would be sent to live. In practice, asylum seekers would have to submit an application in person at the Danish border and then be flown to an asylum centre outside Europe while their application is being processed. If the application is approved and the person is granted refugee status, he or she would be given the right to live in the host country.
Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen was taken to a hospital after collapsing on the field during a match at the European Championship, leading to the game being suspended for more than 90 minutes.
The governing body of European soccer said Eriksen has been stabilised and the Danish soccer federation said he was awake.
"Christian Eriksen is awake and is undergoing further examinations at Rigshospitalet," the Danish federation wrote on Twitter.
Danish soccer federation director Peter Moeller said Eriksen got a "heart massage" while being treated on the field.
