The number of rescued migrants is suddenly much higher in November than last October, when no more than 48 people were rescued daily and brought to Italy. Since August, according to the IOM, fewer people from Africa, most of them from Libya, have jumped to Europe.

In September there were 6300, in October 6000 migrants. In May and June, another 23,000 people reached the other side of the sea on a monthly basis. The sharp decline is explained by the sharper control by the Libyan coastguard, which is supported by the Italian navy.
