STORY: EU TO TIGHTEN BORDER RULES DATELINE: May 5, 2011 LENGTH: 0:00:31 LOCATION: Brussels VOSOT The European Union has proposed revamping its unique system of unfettered cross-border travel. The EU Commission on Wednesday suggested restoring controls in the EU's free travel zone. The EU home affairs chief Cecilia Malmstroem said it may also be necessary to foresee temporary national border checks under very exceptional circumstances. The announcement follows calls by France and other EU states to keep migrants fleeing turmoil in North Africa from spreading through the EU. More than 25,000 migrants, mainly from Tunisia have fled towards the EU since the beginning of the year. Powered by www.newslook.com Producer : Xinhua News Agency
