Italy - IOM reports that 291,175 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea in 2016 through 7 September. In 2016 almost all migrant and refugee landings in the Mediterranean have been to Greece and Italy.

Although the total number of arrivals so far this year (291,175) are almost 60,000 less than the same period last year (350,504 up to 30 August), mainly due to the sharp drop in arrivals to Greece since earlier in the year, the number of deaths is higher compared to last year.
