EU weighs plans to ease France, Italy migrant tensions


(AP Photo/Jean-Francois Badias)By LORNE COOKEuropean Union interior ministers on Friday weighed proposals to ease tensions between France and Italy over migrants arriving on their shores without authorization, including a possible crackdown on charity-run ships doing search and rescue work in the Mediterranean Sea. A diplomatic row erupted earlier this month when Italy maneuvered France into accepting a humanitarian rescue ship, the Ocean Viking, with 234 migrants aboard. Darmanin and his counterparts are seeking a more permanent solution to a problem that has dogged the EU for many years. Part of that plan involves the idea of imposing tighter rules on ships doing search and rescue work. Neither the EU nor any of its member countries actively search for migrants at sea unless they receive an emergency call.
