EU refugee crisis plea


GENEVA: The United Nations’ refugee agency has called on Europe to band together in dealing with the migrant crisis following chaotic scenes at the weekend in Greece, Macedonia and Serbia.

More capacity is required to ensure the safety of migrants on their journeys to other parts of Europe, according to a statement from the United Nations High Commission­er for Refugees (UNHCR).

An estimated 7000 migrants have arrived in Serbia in the past two days after neighbouri­ng Macedonia caved in to pressure and opened its borders.
