Eritrean refugees to resettle in Sweden under new EU plan | News | DW.COM | 09.10.2015

A plane holding refugees from Eritrea has left Italy, part of a plan to help countries hard hit by the migrant crisis. One Italian leader has called the move an important next step in changing Europe's migration policy.

Eritrean refugees leaving Italy
The plane, carrying 19 refugees from the troubled African nation, left Rome's Ciampino airport for Sweden on Friday, the first phase of the European Union's new resettlement program meant to alleviate the burden faced by countries overwhelmed by the influx of migrants. The plane was bound for Kallax airport in the north of Sweden.
The young Eritreans' departure was also designed as something of a spectacle for the press, with Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano making an appearance and shaking the refugees' hands before the cameras. He told reporters this served as proof the EU was altering its migrant policy. He said flights to Germany, the Netherlands and other countries would begin in the coming weeks.
The EU announced plans to redistribute refugees in September, with plans to relocate around 160,000 people within the next two years. The EU's migration commisioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos, called for all member states to show solidarity in the face of the crisis.
EU leaders have faced a historic challenge with the rising number of refugees arriving from impoverished and war-torn countries in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere. Economically weaker eurozone countries in the south, such as Greece and Italy, face particular strains.
