Italy Copes with Over 40,000 Boat Arrivals in 2014

Italy - With the arrival of over 3,000 boat people in Sicily over the weekend, the number of migrants who have managed to reach Italy from North Africa since the beginning of the year is almost equal to the total number of arrivals in 2013.

In 2013, 42,000 migrants risked crossing the Mediterranean – mainly from Libya – on often unseaworthy boats and reached Italy, compared with over 40,000 in the first five months of this year.

Hundreds of migrants breach Morocco-Spain border

05/28/2014 09:00 GMT

by Elodie CUZIN

MADRID, May 28, 2014 (AFP) - More than 400 migrants stormed across a towering, triple-layer border fence from Morocco into the tiny Spanish territory of Melilla on Wednesday, one of the biggest crossings in nearly a decade, officials said.

About 1,000 sub-Saharans joined in the dawn attempt to enter Melilla, a tempting target for Africans desperate to reach Europe as it forms one of the only land crossings along with another Spanish territory, Ceuta, to the west.
