Illegals crossing the Italian Alps in a bid to reach France

Hundreds have attempted the route over the last year, in an attempt to evade border security. Illegals began heading across the mountains last spring as the French authorities tightened up on attempts to cross in the coastal Ventimiglia area.

In 2017, 171,635 illegals arrived in Europe by boat from the Middle East and Africa, down from 363,504 in 2016 and 1million in 2015.

The International Organisation for Migration estimates 20,000 have died in the Mediterranean sea while trying to reach Italy.
