The arrival of more than 1 million migrants in Europe in 2015 transformed the region’s political landscape. Four years later, the numbers seeking refuge have fallen sharply—even if the rhetoric surrounding the newcomers has not.
The British government announced on Wednesday that 87% of imports would be subject to a zero-tariff access if no Brexit deal is reached between the EU and the UK.
Morocco's Catholic bishops on Tuesday hoped that Pope Francis' upcoming visit will highlight the situation of migrants in the country which has been serving as the gateway to Europe. "We have had to prioritize to whom the aid goes first. Our church suffers from lack of funds. We can give some migrants food, plastic, covers, yet we can't give them the respect they deserve. They are people not animals." the Associated Press quoted Archbishop of Tangier, Santiago Agrelo Martinez, as saying.
