Description

The number of illegal border crossings at Europe’s external borders dropped by 40% in the first two months of 2021 compared to a year ago to 12 000*, largely because of a drop in arrivals in Eastern and Western Mediterranean, according to preliminary calculations. In February, the number of illegal border crossings reached 4 650, about half the figure from the same month of last year.
