 Europe's passport-free travel zone to be suspended for two years, - The Times

Europe’s passport-free travel zone is set to be suspended for two years after EU ministers demanded a stop to the influx of migrants.

Censor.NET reports citing The Times.

Brussels was instructed to suspend the Schengen zone to allow more border checks, while officials are working on plans to lock Greece out of the travel area because the country has failed to stop or register hundreds of thousands of migrants.

The European Commission will now work on emergency measures for a new system of frontier controls to prevent migrants getting from Greece to Germany through the Balkans.
