The EU ought to take care of 121 people, including 32 children, recently rescued at sea, European Parliament president David-Maria Sassoli has said to outgoing European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in a letter.

The European Union has nominated a record three women for its top posts, following the European Parliament elections in May, by choosing Bulgaria's Kristalina Georgieva to lead the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Last month Germany's Ursula von der Leyen was nominated president of the European Commission and France's Christine Lagarde picked to lead the European Central Bank. Georgieva is a former EU commissioner and currently World Bank chief executive.
