France criticises Italy for failing to screen migrants

AP  |  Brussels 

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says is not doing enough to screen arriving migrants and is failing to ensure that people who do not qualify for asylum are sent home.

Cazeneuve told reporters in Luxembourg Thursday that "we have to do what was decided," by properly screening people from northern at registration centers known as "hotspots."

He says "it's unthinkable that some of those who arrive in do not pass through the hotspots, otherwise we are taking a security risk."

Cazeneuve says most migrants who come to want to improve their way of life and are not fleeing conflict. He said these people "who do not qualify for protection in must be sent back."

Around 150,000 migrants have entered by sea this year.
