EU leaders are set to meet in Brussels amid continuing tension among members over a deal to relocate 120 thousand migrants across the continent.

 

Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary opposed a mandatory quota scheme that was approved yesterday.

 

Slovakia announced it was launching a legal challenge.

 

Today's emergency summit will also focus on tightening EU borders and boosting aid to neighbours of Syria, from where many migrants come.
