Over 5,000 people died trying to cross the Mediterranean in 2016, making it the deadliest year ever, according to the United Nations.

 

The International Organisation for Migration said it believes many more deaths at sea may have gone unreported in 2016, particularly between North Africa to Spain, where data collection has been sporadic and many smaller vessels are believed to have been lost without detection.
