Refugees confronted at “jungle”, new record wave reaches Europe

More than 131,000 migrants and refugees have reached Europe via the Mediterranean this year, more than the total in the first five months of 2015, the United Nations said Tuesday. Out of a total of 131,724 people who have arrived on Europe's shores this year, 122,637 landed in Greece and most were fleeing the conflict in Syria, the UN's refugee agency (UNHCR) said. Meanwhile, It is another distressing moment at the migrant camp known as “The Jungle”: a migrant appears to threaten to harm herself before being overpowered by police officers.
