EU announces refugee quotas for member states

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has announced plans that he says will offer a "swift, determined and comprehensive" response to Europe's migrant crisis.

Under the proposals, 120,000 additional asylum seekers will be distributed among EU nations, with binding quotas.

It comes after a surge of thousands of mainly Syrian migrants pushed north through Europe in recent days.
