BRUSSELS - A record 156,000 migrants entered the European Union in August, the bloc's border agency Frontex said on Tuesday, taking the total for the year to more than 500,000.

That compares to just 280,000 migrants crossing EU borders for the whole of 2014.

August marked the fifth consecutive monthly record, Frontex said, as Europe struggles to deal with the flow of migrants fleeing poverty and turmoil in the Middle East and Africa.
