'EU Should Share Out Refugees': UN - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

So far this year alone Italy has rescued more than 50, 000 refugees from overcrowded and unsafe boats in the waters between North Africa and Sicily. Many are fleeing civil war in Syria and forced military service in Eritrea. European Union law says the country where refugees first arrive should handle their applications for asylum. The United Nations refugee agency is urging the Eu to change its rules to help ease the load on Italy.
