MUNICH/BRATISLAVA French Prime Minister Manuel Valls rejected on Saturday the idea of a permanent quota system for distributing refugees across Europe, putting Paris at odds with Germany ahead of a summit to discuss the EU crisis over migration. Speaking to reporters at a security conference in Munich, Valls said France would stick to its pledge to take on 30,000 of the 160,000 refugees European countries have agreed to divide among themselves, but would not accept additional numbers. "We won't take any more," Valls said

Refugee doctors are a healthy boost for Scotland | Kevin McKenna 13.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Refugees and asylum-seekers provide a golden opportunity to increase Scotland’s working population and strengthen its economy

On Thursday evening, as our Holyrood government prepared for the next round of its arm-wrestling contest with Westminster over the fiscal framework, an initiative was being unveiled in Glasgow’s west end which seemed to cut to the heart of the debate.

In doing so it provided a synopsis of Scotland’s case for squeezing a better settlement from the UK while also showing how progressive and enlightened thinking on refugees and asylum-seekers could benefit our country.

Fire at Sea review – a powerful study of migrant crisis 13.2.2016 The Guardian -- World Latest

Italian director Gianfranco Rosi creates an unsentimental documentary about the carnage and despair as Lampedusans struggle to deal with desperate refugees

In 2013 Gianfranco Rosi won the Golden Lion at Venice with Sacro GRA, a lyrical documentary about – of all things – the buzz of activity around Rome’s ring-road, the Grande Raccordo Anulare. Now Rosi has put his quiet observational skills and judicious sense of shot selection to work on a far more hot-button topic: the Sicilian island of Lampedusa as it battles to contain the flood of migrants attempting the perilous crossing from north Africa in horrifically overcrowded boats.

Refugee crisis 'a near existential' threat to Europe: John Kerry 13.2.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
The mass influx of refugees and other refugees into Europe spells a "near existential threat" to the continent, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday.  "We are facing the gravest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II," he said at the Munich Security Conference, which has been dominated by the Syrian conflict which is driving the mass flight. "The United States understands the near-existential nature of this threat to the politics and fabric of life in Europe," he told the meeting. Europe has been deeply split by how to handle the mass influx of people fleeing war-torn Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries. Germany took in 1.1 million refugees last year, while Italy and Greece have been overwhelmed as the main arrival points from the Middle East and Africa. Sweden and Austria have also taken in large numbers, but many EU members, especially in the east, have been deeply reluctant to open their doors. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said today that the view in Paris is "not ...
