France considers suspending Schengen deal

France is considering suspending the Schengen border-free travel agreement to block a massive rise in migrants from Tunisia and Libya.

A source close to President Nicolas Sarkozy's office says France wants to make it easier to set up temporary border controls. Sarkozy is due to address the issue when he meets Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in Rome on Tuesday.

Last weekend, France shut its borders to trains carrying African migrants from Italy, triggering a dispute between the two governments.
