European Union and Balkan leaders hold emergency talks on Europe's refugee crisis on Sunday.

The mini-summit, called by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, groups the heads of ten EU nations including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, plus the leaders of Albania, Serbia and Macedonia.

The meeting comes after Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia warned they would not allow themselves to become a "buffer zone" for the tens of thousands of arrivals streaming into Europe.
