EU rejects hasty security response to Paris killings

BRUSSELS, Jan 12 (Reuters) – The European Union wants
governments and security forces to work more closely together to
counter threats of violence like that in Paris last week, but
cautioned on Monday against a hasty response.

As France put troops on the streets, Hungary’s prime
minister called for Europe to close its doors to immigration and
EU ministers agreed to consider changing passport-free travel
rules, the bloc’s executive said enhancements to
counter-terrorism cooperation were already in the works and
called for urgent consultations on what further improvements can
be made.
