Antalya (Turkey) (AFP) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Sunday there was no need for a complete review of the bloc's refugee policy after the Paris attacks claimed by Islamic State jihadists.

"Those who organised, who perpetrated the attacks are the very same people who the refugees are fleeing and not the opposite. And so there is no need for an overall review of the European policy on refugees," Juncker said ahead of a summit of the Group of 20 top world economies in the Turkish Mediterranean resort of Antalya.
