Hungary PM says Europe should process refugees in Libya

The European Union should set up a "giant refugee city" on the Libyan coast and process asylum claims from refugees arriving from Africa there with the help of a new Libyan government, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban proposed on Saturday.
Speaking in Vienna after a summit of European and Balkans countries on the refugee crisis, Orban said the European Union's external borders should be under "total control" - including the Mediterranean border, in which Libya is instrumental.
Libya's unity should be preserved, the Western arms embargo against it canceled, the "Libyan liberation army" supported and a new Libyan government set up and brought into a cooperation agreement by the time migration picks up again next spring in the Mediterranean, he said.
