Italy Migration Statistics Jun/July 2017

Italy has helped the Libyan government patrol its coastline and its southern desert border, human traffickers still appear to be running rampant. In addition, organisations assisting migrants say that the smugglers’ methods have grown increasingly brutal, with refugees reporting cases of rape, beatings, forced labour and even killings. Human traffickers are also warning migrants that a Libyan government crackdown could be around the corner, so this could be their last chance to make it to Europe.
