The EU said a controversial programme to relocate 40,000 refugees within the bloc from overstretched frontline states would formally start on Friday when a group of Eritreans will travel to Sweden from Italy.

"First relocations within EU take place on Friday" following an agreement by interior ministers in September, the EU's home affairs office said in a tweet. "Eritrean refugees will be relocated from Italy to Sweden."
