Europe hopes to reach an agreement which could halt flow of migrants
EU leaders are in meetings with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu over the migrant crisis. Brussels is hoping for a deal with Ankara aimed at stopping the flow of people to the continent from the Middle East and North Africa. Possible terms of the agreement include Turkey accepting mass returns of asylum seekers.
Additionally, the country's coastline would be patrolled to prevent migrants from crossing the Aegean Sea to Greece. The EU, in turn, would admit one legal refugee direct from Ankara for each one taken back.
The potential deal is being slammed by human rights groups which are calling on the 28-nation bloc not to "trade lives" with Turkey.
