Pope urges Europe to share migrant burden fairly

A migrant holds her baby after arriving on the Greek island of Lesbos, after crossing the Aegean Sea from Turkey, on February 28, 2016Pope Francis on Sunday urged European countries struggling with the migrant crisis to “share the burden fairly”, amid growing divisions on how to handle the flow of people fleeing poverty and war. Nearly 120,000 migrants have arrived in Europe so far this year, according to the latest figures from the UN refugee agency, adding to the one million who made the perilous journey in 2015, mostly across the Aegean Sea from Turkey to the Greek islands. The influx has triggered rows and bitter recrimination among European Union states at odds over who should take in the newcomers.
