curated by the MEDreport editorial team
In October, the number of people who were forced to flee and cross the Mediterranean Sea and managed to arrive in Italy was 13,716.
Among them were 2,161 unaccompanied minors. Numbers, again, extremely close to those of the previous month and so far removed from the immigration emergency rhetoric that has characterized previous months. The 3rd of October was the ninth anniversary of the shipwreck that occurred in 2013, when 368 people lost their lives off the coast of Lampedusa. Since 3rd October 2013, more than 24,000 refugees and migrants have died or are missing in the Mediterranean Sea.
