              More than 430,000 refugees and migrants have crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe so far this year, more than double the total for the whole of last year, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) says. Updated figures released on Friday showed that an estimated 309,356 people arrived by boat in Greece, with another 121,139 arriving in Italy, 2,166 in Spain and 100 in Malta. The figures are more than double when compared to the 197,940 people who crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe in all of 2014. The crossing is also one of the deadliest in the world: at least 2,748 migrants have died this year alone trying to reach Europe.
