BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Germany, France, Italy, Austria and others will hold a special meeting on migration in Brussels on Sunday, an EU diplomat said on Wednesday.

Germany’s coalition government almost cracked apart as Merkel’s Christian Democrats and their sister party - Bavaria’s Christian Social Union (CSU) - rowed over immigration but the CSU on Monday gave Merkel two weeks to get a deal with European allies.
