EU fails to reach migrant deal as countries impose border checks

A migrant family walks in the rain towards Nickelsdorf after crossing the Hungarian-Austrian on September 14, 2015Röszke (Hungary) (AFP) – EU ministers failed to reach agreement on a quota plan to share the burden of a flood of refugees as Hungary closed the main migrant crossing with Serbia and other European countries imposed border checks. With Europe’s 20-year-old Schengen passport-free zone creaking under the pressure, Austria and Slovakia said they would follow economic powerhouse Germany’s lead in reinstating frontier controls to deal with the flow of people. Long traffic jams built up on the Germany-Austria border and refugees were left stranded on non-EU Serbia’s side of the frontier with Hungary in the latest chaotic scenes from the biggest such crisis since World War II.
