Tensions mounted at the key southern gateway into Germany for thousands of migrants, with overstretched German and Austrian officials trading barbs as asylum seekers queued at border posts for hours in the cold.Wrapped in several layers of blankets and huddled close to each other for warmth, about 100 refugees were waiting at the crack of dawn to cross into Germany from Austria.At the Simbach border crossing, migrants had other things on their minds than the tensions between the two EU neighbors.Wednesday, at least five migrants including three children, died after four boats sank between Turkey and Greece, as rescue workers searched the sea for dozens more, the Greek coast guard said.One of the boats had around 100 migrants aboard when it sank north of the Greek island of Lesbos, it said.The new accidents brought to 34 the number of migrants found dead in Greek waters this month, according to an AFP tally based on data from Greek port police.All the rescued migrants are now headed to Italy, the Italian coastguard said.
