Europe’s migrant crisis: key questions

Illegal migrants demonstrate against British government, on August 20, 2015Europe's refugee and migrant crisis has escalated over the summer, leaving the continent divided over how to deal with a flood of people led by Syrians fleeing war in their homeland. A record surge in numbers, and the opening up of new routes over the Balkans in addition to the Mediterranean sea route, have prompted the EU to call a special meeting on the issue in two weeks. The situation in Syria, the origin of the largest number of refugees, has worsened because of the rise of the Islamic State extremist group and continuing civil war, so more people are fleeing.


Blast at Syria’s Palmyra prompts fears for famed temple

A view of the external courtyard of the temple of Baal (also written Bel) in the ancient Syrian oasis city of Palmyra, northeast of Damascus, pictured on March 14, 2014A powerful blast in the ruins of Syria's ancient Palmyra raised fears Monday that the Islamic State group has damaged another of the Middle East's most treasured heritage sites. Both Syria's antiquities chief and a monitor reported Sunday's explosion in the UNESCO World Heritage site, but there was conflicting information on the fate of its famed Temple of Bel. IS destroyed the smaller Baal Shamin temple at Palmyra last week, confirming the worst fears about their intentions for the site, which they seized from Syrian regime forces in May.

Travellers sit in a train with migrants on board, en route from Budapest to ViennaBy Karin Strohecker and Marton Dunai VIENNA/BUDAPEST (Reuters) – A train carrying hundreds of migrants headed to Vienna on Monday after being held for hours at Austria's border with Hungary amid a security clampdown on trafficking gangs and efforts to apply fraying European rules intended to manage the flow of refugees. Austrian Railways had cited "overcrowding" on the train and a police spokesman in Vienna said Austria wanted to check whether any of the migrants had already asked for asylum in Hungary. A second train from Budapest remained stuck at the border.
