UNHCR says that some 264,500 refugees and migrants have crossed the Mediterranean this year.¬†They include more than 158,000 who have arrived in Greece — many landing on small islands ill-equipped to deal with the influx — along with about 104,000 who’ve gone to Italy, around 1,950 to Spain and almost 100 to Malta.
