European interior ministers have agreed a deal to relocate 120,000 migrants across the continent in a vote passed by a significantmajority.
Under the plan, migrants will be moved from Italy, Greece and Hungary to other countries in the EU.
Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary voted against accepting mandatory quotas.
But a large majority of EU member states backed the plan, which will take effect over the next two years.
Finland was the only country of the EU's 28 members to abstain from the vote. Poland, who had opposed the proposal, voted for it.
