La donna, scrive il giornale Nice Matin, viaggiava con la sua famiglia su un convoglio proveniente da Ventimiglia ed è stata costretta a scendere a Mentone.

Ekathimerini | 05.04.2018

A sharp increase in migrant arrivals on the shores of the Aegean islands is being read as a reaction by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to reports of certain European Union member-states refusing to foot the bill of an EU-Turkey migration deal, Kathimerini understands.

After several days of no arrivals on the eastern Aegean island of Chios, 177 migrants reached its shores on Wednesday.

An official at the Citizens’ Protection Ministry said the sudden influx appeared to be politically motivated. “What happened yesterday… clearly proves that the Turkish president controls the flows toward Greece and, by extension, to the European Union,” the official said.

Tensions have peaked in the Aegean in recent weeks with a spike in Turkish violations of Greek air space – there were 31 on Wednesday – and disputes at sea.

OHCHR | 04.04.2018

UN human rights experts* are urging the Government of France to do more to provide safe drinking water, sanitation services and emergency shelter for migrants and asylum-seekers in Calais, Grande-Synthe, Tatinghem, Dieppe and other areas along the northern French coast.

It is estimated that up to 900 migrants and asylum-seekers in Calais, 350 in Grande-Synthe, and an unidentified number at other sites elsewhere along the northern French coast are living without adequate emergency shelter and proper access to drinking water, toilets or washing facilities.

“Migrants and asylum-seekers along the northern French coast, including those not admitted to the sports centre in Grande-Synthe, are facing an inhumane situation, with some living in tents without toilets and washing themselves in polluted rivers or lakes,” said Léo Heller, the Special Rapporteur on the human rights to water and sanitation.

An eyewitness account and analysis of what it means for French customs officials to force a Nigerian man to urinate in Italy.

Martina Tazzioli

BARDONECCHIA, ITALY – The strengthening of migration controls at the internal frontiers of Europe is not a smooth affair. Far from only trying to gain control over migrant crossings, EU member states are reshaping border policies to project sovereign power and support state prerogatives, such as anti-terrorism. This work has included the implementation of bilateral agreements between national police forces, as well as measures aimed at intimidating solidarity networks that support migrants. The forced entry into a room of the Bardonecchia railway station, located a few kilometres inside Italy, and the diplomatic row that followed glaringly shows the political stakes that are behind inter-state border cooperation.
