EU leaders are to begin an emergency summit to decide how strongly they should respond to Russia's troop deployment in Ukraine's Crimea region.

Some members, particularly from Eastern Europe, want tough sanctions, while others, led by Germany, seek mediation.

Ahead of the talks, the EU said it had frozen the assets of 18 former Ukrainian officials, including ousted President Viktor Yanukovych.

Pro-Russian forces remain in de facto control of Crimea.
