EU ministers met again in Brussels to come up with a Europe-wide response to the refugee crisis. But there was more acrimony than constructive debate. Meanwhile thousands of migrants remain stranded as more and more countries seal their frontiers.

EU budget chief Günther Oettinger says he wants Berlin to pay at least 3 billion euros more to cope with new tasks after Britain leaves the bloc. But he said that meant just 10 cents a day more for everyone in Germany.
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has voiced his support for Serbia's membership to the European Union, but not before it accepts Kosovo's independence. Five EU member states have also yet to recognize Kosovo.
