Bulgaria will send over 400 troops and other security personnel to guard its border with Greece, amid fears the migrant flow along the Balkan route will pick up with the onset of warmer weather, the country’s prime minister said Saturday.

“Hundreds of people, more than 400, from the army, paramilitary police and police, will stay here permanently,” said Prime Minister Boiko Borissov following security force exercises involving helicopters and armored cars at the Greek border.
