Italians angered after Switzerland closes border crossings at night

Italy said on Tuesday that it had summoned Switzerland’s ambassador after Swiss authorities implemented overnight closures of three small border crossings.
Ambassador Giancarlo Kessler said the closure of the border posts in the southern canton of Ticino was an experimental measure to test whether it improved cooperation between the neighbouring countries’ police forces, according to a statement from the Italian foreign ministry. Source The Local
