Aumento en llegadas de migrantes a Italia, a pesar del peligro

February 27, 2023 - El mortal naufragio de una barca de migrantes frente a las costas delsur de Italia ha atraído atención sobre los peligrosos viajes de miles
de personas que cruzan cada año el Mediterráneo.

More than 100 people, including children, are feared to have died after their boat sank in rough seas off southern Italy on Sunday.

The vessel, thought to have carried some 200 people, broke apart while trying to land near the town of Crotone.

The coastguard said 80 people had been found alive, “including some who managed to reach the shore after the sinking”, meaning many more remain unaccounted for, according to the BBC.

Italy is one of the main landing points for migrants trying to enter Europe by sea, with many seeking to travel on to richer northern European nations. But do to so, they must brave the world’s most dangerous migration route, Reuters said.

According to monitoring groups, more than 20,000 people have died or gone missing at sea in the central Mediterranean since 2014.
