Brace for 'heavy' migrant season says EC

'Holistic approach' to be unveiled next month

(ANSA) - Brussels, April 14 - Europe must brace "to cope with a heavy migratory season" with thousands of migrants poised to take to the Mediterranean this summer, the European Commission said Tuesday.
    The EC is ready to "play its part" and its new "holistic approach" will be unveiled next month, European Immigration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said.
    Estimates of the desperate migrants who will try the dangerous crossing this summer range from 250,000 to 500,000.
