A migrant tries to board a boat of the German NGO Sea-Watch in the Mediterranean Sea on November 6, 2017. During a shipwreck, five people died, including a newborn child. The United Nations estimates that 164,654 migrants crossed the Mediterranean to enter Europe in 2017, less than half of last year's total of 350,549. Despite the lower numbers, the journey remains extremely dangerous—3,038 deaths were reported this year.
