EU commission President Jose Manuel Barroso has pledged an extra €30m for Italy to help settle migrants. The pledge followed a visit to Lampedusa on Wednesday, the island near which around 270 African migrants drowned last week. Barroso said he was "profoundly shocked" by all the coffins he had seen.
