DAY THE EU FELL APART: Leaders rip chunks out of each other on worst day of migrant chaos

EUROPE was plunged into unprecedented crisis tonight as EU leaders lined up to rip chunks out of each other on the worst day of migrant chaos to date.


As tear gas rained down on rioting migrants in Greece and France bickering countries squabbled over who should take the blame for the spiralling crisis which shows no sign of slowing.

Once again the cavernous divisions between different EU countries were laid bare for all to see, with Angela Merkel angrily defending Germany’s role in the chaos amid sniping from other member states.

In a day of unprecedented migrant violence thousands of refugees smashed down a border fence between Macedonia and Greece whilst inhabitants of the Calais Jungle camp set fires and hurled rocks at police as they attempted to avoid eviction.

But the carnage wrought in those riots was matched by the diplomatic damage being done to the EU as member states turned on each other in savage fashion.

Mrs Merkel was on the back foot as she voiced her “despair” at other European nations which fail to share her dream for open door immigration.

Many EU states now deeply resent Germany and blame its leader for unleashing millions of migrants on the continent after she rashly promised all Syrians asylum.

Refusing to put a limit on the number of refugees entering her country, she defiantly told state broadcaster ARD: “Sometimes, I also despair. Some things go too slow. There are many conflicting interests in Europe.

“But it is my damn duty to do everything I can so that Europe finds a collective way.“
