EU Agrees With Ethiopia To Crackdown On Migrants And Tackle Human Smuggling

The European Union (EU) and Ethiopia have cut a deal to tackle migration and human smuggling.

The deal was signed Wednesday as EU and African leaders met in Malta looking for ways to stop the flow of people looking for work in Europe.

Under the agreement, Ethiopia would have access to money from a 1.8 billion euro ($1.9 billion) trust fund to help African nations better manage migration.

Ethiopia is a major hub for people who are trying to reach Europe. It is also home to more than 700,000 refugees from other countries.
