COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - The Danish government decided on Tuesday to extend temporary control over the country's border to Germany by 10 days to March 4, the Ministry for Immigration, Integration and Housing said.

"The government still sees the control as necessary to avoid accumulation of illegal immigrants in Denmark," it said in a statement.
