European Union (EU) leaders are expected to offer countries in Africa billions of Euros in exchange for help with the migrant crisis at a summit in Malta.

According to BBC News, the European Commission says it will give 1.8 billion Euros and it expects EU countries to pledge more.

The aim is to tackle the economic and security problems that cause people to flee, and persuade African countries to take back more failed asylum seekers.

The meeting was planned after a sinking off Libya in April, in which about 800 died.
