GENEVA – More than one million migrants and refugees reached Europe this year, including over 970,000 who made the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean, the U.N. refugee agency said Tuesday.
A total of 3,692 migrants died or disappeared crossing the sea, IOM said.
“The number of people displaced by war and conflict is the highest seen in Western and Central Europe since the 1990s,” the UNHCR said, referring to the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia that decade.
