The spokesperson for Egypt’s Armed Forces issued a statement announcing that troops arrested 398 migrants along the country’s western and southern borders from February 21 to March 13. A large part of them had been arrested around the Salloum border crossing with Libya. Migrants are trying to flew from Egypt to Libya to have an access to Europe, crossing the Mediterranean sea. But we also have an other category of migrant, which are the Egyptians fleeing from Egypt to find job opportunities in Libya. However, even if Egypt has increased the control of its borders, and if EU, especially Italy try to reduce the migrant flux, 181,446 undocumented migrants arrived in Italy last year, when 4,579 are reportly dead.
