PARIS - France is ready to take in 24,000 refugees as part of EU plans to welcome more than 100,000 in the next two years, French President Francois Hollande said at a news conference on Monday.

Hollande repeated that he and German leader Angela Merkel wanted the 28-country European Union to back a plan under which each country would be obliged to take its fair share of a total of 120,000 migrants.

"This is a crisis, and it is a grave and dramatic one. It can be brought under control and it will be," he said.
