The UN estimates that since 2014, nearly 50,000 migrants have died or disappeared in attempts to reach destinations such as the United States or the European Union.

Within days, two deadly tragedies involved people trying to cross international borders.

On Friday (24/6) at least 23 people died when a huge crowd tried to cross a barrier on the Moroccan border to reach the Spanish enclave of Melilla in North Africa.

Three days later, in the United States, police in the city of San Antonio discovered the bodies of at least 46 people in an abandoned truck.

The number of crossings on the world’s main migration routes appears to be rising following the effects of the covid-19 pandemic, which has led several countries to impose strict access restrictions.
