The European Union's executive will propose a reform of the bloc's asylum rules Wednesday, EU sources said, that reflects caution in the face of deep divisions among governments about how to handle the migration crisis.However, two sources said, it would now issue a legislative proposal retaining the "first country" principle while including a central scheme to spread claimants around Europe to give the front-line states the chance to relocate asylum seekers to other EU countries if arrivals on their borders are too high.Any proposal will need to win the backing of a majority of the 28 EU states as well as the European Parliament for it to be enacted and EU officials and diplomats do not expect agreement swiftly.
