How many have died on the EU borders?
Thousands of immigrants have died trying to reach Europe. An official and accurate census by EU organisations doesn’t exist. However, an initiative promoted by a group of journalists tried to make a calculation of the number of migrants who have died. The Migrants Files, this is the name of the database, reveals that more then 23,000 migrants have died at the borders of Europe since 2000. The figure is probably an underestimate because the list includes only the dead migrants that were documented. But there are many migrants that disappear without a trace in their desperate journeys to reach Europe.
