Dying at Europe's Doorstep

Hosted by

Sobering news out of Europe over the weekend: at least 700 people died after a boat carrying migrants from Africa capsized in the Mediterranean over the weekend. The UN is calling this disaster the worst massacre ever seen in the Mediterranean. And as the weather gets warmer, these dangerous boat trips are expected to continue, creating many more casualties. EU leaders are meeting today to figure out how to handle this crisis.
