EU chief warns Schengen on the brink
AFP, , Thursday 12 Nov 2015

EU President Donald Tusk warned Thursday that the bloc's Schengen open borders accord was on the brink of collapse as a result of the fallout from the migration crisis.

"Saving Schengen is a race against time and we are determined to win that race," Tusk said at the end of an EU-Africa summit in Malta.

His comments follow moves by Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia and Sweden to reintroduce border controls or erect frontier fences to control migrant entries to their territory.
