Brussels (AFP) - EU states on Tuesday agreed a deal to relocate 120,000 refugees from countries on the frontline despite opposition from eastern members.

Here is how the redistribution of 66,000 refugees currently in Italy and Greece will work.

The remaining 54,000 were initially to have been taken from Hungary, but that plan was revised after Budapest pulled out of the scheme. That number of people will now be taken from other European countries in a decision which will be made next year.

Ireland, which also has an opt-out, has opted in and said it will take 4,000.

Demmark, which is excluded from migration issues under the EU Treaty, has said it will take 1,000.

Switzerland and Norway as countries in the EU's Schengen passport-free zone have "declared their readiness to participate".
