Description

The fourth quarter of 2013 was characterised by the highest number of detections of illegal border-crossing of all fourth quarters since 2009. Specifically, the number of detections in the Central Mediterranean was more than four times higher than in Q4 2012. However, as in most previous years, detections on this route decreased between Q3 and Q4 due to the onset of the winter season rendering sea crossing more difficult.
