European Union countries remained deeply divided Tuesday over how to reform EU rules for managing the influx of refugees and migrants, as United Nations agencies reported that an estimated 112 people died over the weekend when a smuggler's boat sank as it tried to reach Europe.EU leaders have insisted that the deadlock over how to handle migrants and refugees must be broken this month.Italy has been the primary entry point for thousands of migrants to Europe via the Mediterranean this year.Under an emergency plan, EU member countries agreed to relocate to other parts of the bloc 160,000 Syrians and other refugees from Italy and Greece within two years.However, only 34,690 people have been relocated so far, as most migrants made their own way to Germany and other wealthy northern countries amid the chaotic EU response to the crisis.
