    EU ministers begin talks to discuss migrant crisis

    Jan 25, Amsterdam: Justice and interior ministers from EU countries have started urgent discussions on how to tackle the migrant crisis amid the stream of new arrivals and continuing disagreements over how to seal off borders.

    The meeting on Monday comes days after European Council President Donald Tusk warned that Europe's passport-free travel area, known as Schengen, could break apart if the migrant strategy is not sorted out within two months.

    Ministers will be seeking to stem the flow through Greece, where authorities are struggling to contain the crossings by boat from Turkey.

    According to the EU figures, more than 2,000 people are still arriving Europe every day.
