French President Francois Hollande said Thursday he will seek a UN resolution authorising the EU to destroy boats used by traffickers to send thousands of migrants across the Mediterranean to Europe.

“We will look at all the options for seeking out and destroying these boats… that can only be done under a UN resolution (on which) France will take the initiative with others,” Hollande said after an emergency EU summit on the recent upsurge in migrants risking their lives to reach European shores.
