German Chancellor Angela Merkel says “Europe as a whole needs to move” on how to deal with refugees and migrants arriving in the EU.

BBC News quoted Ms. Merkel as saying that “If Europe fails on the question of refugees, then it won’t be the Europe we wished for”.

She was speaking after Austrian authorities arrested five suspected people smugglers along the country’s eastern borders.

Ms. Merkel said European countries must share the burden of refugees.
