Copenhagen, Sep 8 (IANS) A 29-km stretch of highway on the Danish island of Lolland was closed late Monday after hundreds of refugees heading to Sweden swarmed into the country over the weekend, police said.

The Sydmotorvejen highway from Sakskoebing to Roedbyhavn in southern Lolland has been closed from 8 p.m., reported Xinhua.

It is not known how long the closure will last and motorists were told to find alternates routes.
