European leaders lashed out Sunday at each other's handling of the continent's greatest immigration crisis since World War II, even as they came together to seek ways to ease the plight of the tens of thousands marching across the Balkans toward the European Union's heartland. At a hastily called emergency summit in Brussels, 11 EU and Balkan leaders were especially looking to shore up Greece's porous border with Turkey and slow the flow of people heading north toward the European Union's heartland. more than 62,000 migrants have arrived in Slovenia, with some 14,000 still passing through the country on Sunday.In a 16-point plan seen by Reuters, leaders will try to balance their approach, likely agreeing to send 400 border guards to the western Balkan border if the EU's frontier states drop their policy of giving arrivals passage to other countries.Many say the EU needs to get control of the refugee flow at the bloc's external border between EU-member Greece and Turkey.Greece, criticized for being ill-prepared as a first EU buffer against the migrants, decried the lack of European solidarity.
