Austria wants to close Mediterranean migrant route

Austria's foreign minister, Sebastian Kurz, told Austrian media that the Mediterranean migrant route from north Africa to Italy needs to be sealed off. Kurz, who was behind the drive to seal the Western Balkan route last year, wants rescued migrants to be taken to camps in Tunisia and Egypt. Some 160,000 people have landed in Italy from the north African coast this year alone.
