EU summit to offer resettlement to only 5,000 refugees
Exclusive: Confidential draft from summit reveals that only 5,000 migrants will be allowed to resettle in Europe with large numbers likely to be repatriated
Read More

Migrants wait to disembark from an Italian navy ship in Salerno. Theresa May and Philip Hammond believe such rescue operations create a ‘pull factor’ and lead to more deaths by encouraging migrants to risk the dangerous sea crossing.

Only 5,000 resettlement places across Europe are to be offered to refugees under the emergency summit crisis package to be agreed by EU leaders in Brussels on Thursday.

A confidential draft summit statement seen by the Guardian indicates that the vast majority of those who survive the journey and make it to Italy – 150,000 did so last year – will be sent back as irregular migrants under a new rapid-return programme co-ordinated by the EU’s border agency, Frontex. More than 36,000 boat survivors have reached Italy, Malta and Greece so far this year.

The View From Libya, Ground Zero in the Migrant Crisis

The View From Libya, Ground Zero in the Migrant Crisis
BY MOHAMED ELJARHAPRIL 23, 2015 - 4:35 PM Last week, as many as 1,200 migrants drowned attempting to cross the Mediterranean to Europe from Libya. More than 800 of them died in a single accident, which the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees described as “the deadliest incident ever recorded in the Mediterranean.” The fact that these refugees, who come from all over Africa and the Middle East, embarked on the final stage of their journey from Libya underlines once again the lawlessness and chaos that have engulfed the country since the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime. Libya cannot confront the problem on its own. Human trafficking presents huge threats to Libya and its surrounding region, and international action is needed to combat it.  Read More

When Migrants Flee Progress, Not War
Nearly one-fifth of people crossing the Mediterranean are leaving a country touted for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Turns out, a better life requires more than a U.N. checklist.

Ethiopia: Clashes at rally to mourn Christians killed by ISIL in Libya    Read More

2/04 16:12 CET  Clashes erupted as tens of thousands of Ethiopians gathered to denounce the mass murder of compatriots byISIL extremists.

Wednesday’s government-organised rally in the capital came amid three days of national mourning for some 30 Ethiopian Christians beheaded or shot, on video, by militants in Libya.

“We will not bow down to terrorism!” one placard carried by a young boy said. Another read: “The world must be united against terrorism.”

But many demonstrators in Addis Ababa were also angry that the jobless feel they must travel to places like Libya in the hope of reaching Europe.

“Ethiopians migrate because we want a better life,” said one protester, Daniel Dawit, who knew some of the victims.

“There are Ethiopian people who have degrees and diplomas but can’t find work here. Ethiopians don’t want to migrate. The situation forces them to.”

Security was tight but frustration at poverty and unemployment erupted among the crowd and riot police lashed out with batons. At least 100 people were reported arrested.

Accused of clamping down on free speech, Ethiopia’s government dismisses accusations from rights groups that it stifles critics and opponents.


IOM: Mediterranean death toll could top 30,000 in 2015

International Organization for Migration says 1,727 migrants have died so far in 2015, up from 56 at same point in 2014.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has warned that, based on current figures, the migrant death toll on the Mediterranean this year could top 30,000.
The IOM said late on Tuesday that it believed 1,727 migrants have died trying to make the journey to Europe from North Africa so far this year, compared to just 56 at the same time last year.
"IOM now fears that the 2014 total of 3,279 migrant deaths may be surpassed this year in a matter of weeks," the group said in a statement.
"We just want to make sure people understand how much more ... rapid these deaths have been coming this year," IOM spokesman Joel Millman said earlier on Tuesday.
