European Union leaders on Friday said they reached a breakthrough agreement in a response to the migration crisis after nearly 10 hours of talks at a summit in Brussels. The leaders proposed to start screening migrants in North African countries to determine if they’re eligible for asylum. The agreement also said EU nations would volunteer to host rescued migrants in control centers, where they will be screened and either deported or granted asylum. It remains unclear which nations within North Africa the EU will volunteer to help.
