The Scandinavian state has taken a tough stance on new arrivals from Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia after officially declaring the three ‘safe countries’.
The rule change has allowed Finnish ministers to deny 77 per cent of asylum applications from Iraqis last month, with those migrants now set to be deported back to the Middle East.

Reports have named Ali David Sonboly as the 18-year-old gunman who killed 9 people in a shooting spree at a McDonalds and shopping centre in Munich last night.
The taxi driver's son had both German and Iranian citizenship and had been born and raised in the city before last night's rampage after which he shot himself dead.
He used an illegal Glock 9mm pistol and had 300 rounds of ammunition when he went on what police have called a "classic shooting rampage".
