EU to hold meeting on compulsory refugee quotas
Sept.14, Berlin: The European Union is to hold a meeting on Monday amid deep divisions in the 28-nation bloc over how to handle the influx of refugees.
The decision came after Germany admitted it could no longer cope with a record influx of refugees and reintroduced border controls.
The German decision was announced on the eve of Monday's emergency talks in Brussels, where EU interior ministers are expected to debate the
European Commission's plan to distribute 160,000 refugees around the continent.
After the Sunday’s announcement, German officers began carrying out the first passport checks near the border with Austria.
