European Union heads of state meet Friday in Malta for a summit that will focus on curbing migration from Libya. More than 180,000 people attempted to cross the Mediterranean on smugglers' boats in 2016, and more than 3,000 migrants drowned. As Henry Ridgwell reports, the European Union hopes to boost the capability of Libyan security forces, but faces huge challenges in trying to stem the flow of migrants.
