The European Union pressed African leaders Wednesday to take back thousands of people who do not qualify for asylum, holding talks in Malta as overwhelmed Slovenia began building a razor-wire border fence to keep asylum-seekers out.According to the International Organization for Migration, almost 800,000 people have entered Europe by sea this year. The EU is working closely with Niger to stem the flow of migrants toward Libya, and ultimately with Europe.The European Commission has put 1.8 billion euros ($1.9 billion) into the "trust fund" and wants EU nations to match that figure.Slovenia denies any part of the fence is on Croatian soil.Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar said his country expects about 30,000 new migrants to reach its borders.Nearly 170,000 migrants have crossed into Slovenia since mid-October, when Hungary closed its border with Croatia and the flow of desperate people heading to Western Europe was redirected to Slovenia.
