**教堂敲钟纪念卡特里娜飓风10周年**

教堂的钟声周六在新奥尔良和整个墨西哥湾沿岸的大片地区敲响,纪念造成巨大伤亡的飓风登陆10周年。

一些政要名流在受灾严重的城市新奥尔良献了花圈并讴歌1800多名飓风遇难者。他们同时庆贺城市的复苏和居民的坚韧意志。

Church Bells Toll on US Gulf Coast Marking 10th Anniversary of Katrina

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton delivered the keynote address Saturday at an evening event in the southern city of New Orleans commemorating the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

He said residents of New Orleans have much to be proud of in their achievements since the devastation of Katrina, but should now rededicate themselves to eradicating the disparities of income, education and health.

Church bells tolled Saturday in New Orleans and across large swaths of the Gulf coast, as residents marked the 10th anniversary of the moment the deadly hurricane made landfall.

Dignitaries in the hard-hit city laid wreaths and eulogized the storm's 1,800 dead, while celebrating the recovery of the city and the resiliency of its inhabitants.

EU Calls for Special Meeting on Migrant Crisis

The interior ministers of Britain, France and Germany have called for a special meeting of European Union interior and justice ministers within the next two weeks to deal with the continent's escalating migrant crisis.

The ministers said in a statement Sunday they want to find "concrete steps" to solve the growing migrant dilemma.

Macedonia declared a state of emergency earlier this month in response to daily border crossings from Greece of some 3,000 migrants pushing toward western European countries.

The United Nations estimates 300,000 migrants from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia have fled to Europe this year to escape poverty and violence.

Hundreds have drowned in the Mediterranean, and authorities expect those tolls, as well as fatalities from land smuggling, to rise.
