NATO allies launch sea mission against people-smugglers
By Robin Emmott and Phil Stewart BRUSSELS (Reuters) - NATO will send military vessels to the Aegean Sea to help Turkey and Greece crack down on criminal networks smuggling migrants and refugees into Europe, allied defense ministers said on Thursday. The move, discussed by NATO ministers for the first time at a meeting in Brussels, is aimed at helping the continent tackle its worst migration crisis since World War Two, with more than a million asylum-seekers arriving last year. Although the plan is still to be detailed by NATO generals, member states are likely to use ships to work with Turkish and Greek coastguards and the European Union border agency Frontex.
