Migrantenzahl über zentrales Mittelmeer hat sich verdoppelt

By Jordi Bou

June 16, 2023 - Die Zahl der Migranten, die über das zentrale Mittelmeer in die EU wollen, hat sich 2023 gegenüber dem Vorjahr mehr als verdoppelt, wie die EU Grenzagentur Frontex meldet.

In the first five months of this year, EU countries reported more than 50,300 irregular entries through that route, “the highest number recorded since 2017,” the agency said in a statement.

The Central Mediterranean remained the main migratory route into the EU, accounting for nearly half of all the entries in 2023.

The arrivals on this route drove the raise of 12% of all entries to the EU, as arrivals on all the other migratory routes saw declines ranging from 6% on the Western Mediterranean up to 47% on the Western African route.
