Brindisi's port (Italy), Sep 14h 2016. A group of migrants rescued at sea from a boat in distress and disembarked by the rescue vessel Aquarius in Brindisi (Italy), are informed about their rights by a UNHCR's representative.

The European migrants crisis remains dramatic in 2016. And if in 2015 the Balkans were the main point of entrance, after the EU-Turkey deal on refugees repatriation, in 2016 the Central Mediterranean Route is once again the busiest, and deadliest.

According to the IOM (International Organization for Migration), in 2016 alone more than 181,000 migrants reached Italy by sea, and more than 4,900 people died in the attempt.
