    The European Court of Justice is due to give its opinion on challenges brought against the European Union by Hungary and Slovakia to relocate refugees.

    Hungary and Slovakia say the EU broke its own rules when a majority of member states voted in 2015 to introduce a quota to redistribute up to 120,000 refugees from Italy and Greece across the bloc.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Stancl reports.
