U.N. says 850,000 to cross sea to Europe this year and next

Wednesday, September 9, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - At least 850,000 people are expected to cross the Mediterranean seeking refuge in Europe this year and next, the United Nations said on Tuesday, giving estimates that already look conservative.

The U.N. refugee agency UNHCR called for more cohesive asylum policies to deal with the growing numbers.

Many are refugees from Syria, driven to make the voyage by intensified fighting there and worsening conditions for refugees in surrounding countries due to funding shortfalls in aid programs, UNHCR said. Hundreds have died at sea. [ Source ]

  1. I think the muslims will have the worlds head on a platter...they have tried and were driven back in past centuries but looks like in this century the governments have no ability or desire to stop them....

  2. this is the way for the bad to get their guys into other countrys without problems faster than normal so they,ll think that they will have the head of the snake on a spear, i do believe for some of the refugees too be in good countrys that are trying to help but in some way i don,t see a good out come in the end
