Efforts continue to find a way out of Cyprus's financian crisis. Lawmakers met for most of the day to discuss a fund involving contributions from the orthodox church and pension funds.
As Bulgaria concludes its six-month EU presidency, its foreign minister tells DW that no EU member state was prepared for the refugee crisis.
Mediterranean countries are all in the same boat: they don't want ships carrying rescued refugees to dock at their ports. That approach poses a big problem for aid organizations. DW's Bernd Riegert reports from Brussels.
After five days stranded in the Mediterranean Sea, the migrant rescue ship Lifeline has said it is not allowed to dock in Malta. Italy's prime minister had earlier suggested it was.
Claus-Peter Reisch commanded the Lifeline when it saved hundreds of migrants off the coast of Libya. He accused European countries of accepting the deaths of migrants "for political reasons."
