Report Says Over 3,000 Migrants Die Trying to Reach Europe

New York, February 23 (RHC)-- A recent report finds more than 3,000 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean Sea to Europe during 2014, more than twice the previous high from 2011.

Globally, more than 4,000 migrants died last year trying to reach wealthier or safer countries, including more than 200 on the Mexican border.

Frank Laczko of the International Organization for Migration unveiled the findings. Laczko said: "We now have a global estimate which indicates that we’re dealing here with a long-term problem. Nearly 40,000 migrants, we believe, have perished since the year 2000. So this is a long-term policy issue which is not being properly tackled."
