GENEVA, October 6. /TASS/. About 3,000 migrants have perished in the Mediterranean this year, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said on Tuesday.
"The Mediterranean remains the deadliest route for migrants on our planet," said IOM Director General William Lacy Swing. "This loss of life is unnecessary, completely avoidable and absolutely unacceptable."
The 2015 tally for Mediterranean arrivals now stands at 557,899, virtually double 2014’s full-year total of 219,000 migrants, IOM said.
