More refugees drowning in Mediterranean than ever


This video says about itself:

EU played regime change games and is now drowning in refugees

14 March 2016

It’s been five years since the start of the Syrian war and just over a year since Europe, which called for regime change in Syria at first, has been choking from a refugee crisis. The EU has no plan on how to deal with the problem they helped create and they cover their weakness with bureaucratic statements.

From the United Nations Refugee Agency:

Mediterranean death toll soars, 2016 is deadliest year yet

This is a summary of what was said by UNHCR spokesperson William Spindler – to whom quoted text may be attributed – at today’s press briefing at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.

By: William Spindler | 25 October 2016

UNHCR is alarmed at the high death toll being seen this year among refugees and migrants crossing the Mediterranean. Already, and with two months of 2016 still to go, at least 3,740 lives are reported lost – just short of the 3,771 deaths reported for the whole of 2015. This is the worst we have seen.

This year is the deadliest ever for desperate refugees fleeing across the Mediterranean to Europe in order to escape wars in the Middle East and Africa: here.

At the European Union’s special summit in Malta last Friday, European heads of state adopted a 10-point plan aimed at blocking off the central Mediterranean route from Libya to Italy. The key components of the plan are the upgrading and training of the Libyan coastguard, which is to seize refugees in Libyan territorial waters and return them to the African coast, and the establishment of internment camps in North Africa: here.
