To Estonia, Luxembourg, Sweden, and elsewhere

 

Refugees arriving in Greece

 

Brussels, October 2 — EU sources said Friday the relocation of asylum seekers from Italy to other EU nations including Estonia, Luxembourg and Sweden will begin «within days». The idea is to get it done before the next EU summit on October 15, the sources said. EU interior ministers agreed in September to resettle 120,000 asylum seekers from Greece and Italy — where most refugees fleeing across the Mediterranean usually make first landfall — to other member States.
