BRUSSELS - The European Union executive could allow governments to restore border controls temporarily in Europe's free travel zone under plans presented on Wednesday in response to demands for more national powers over migration.

The announcement follows calls by France and other EU states to keep migrants fleeing turmoil in North Africa from spreading through the EU, and reflects growing divisions in the bloc over how to tackle migration.
