The International
Organisation for Migration estimates that 2,000-3,000 would-be migrants from West Africa
have died trying to reach the Canary Islands this year. Others reckon the true death toll is over three times higher. Meanwhile, Spain says 26,000 migrants have actually landed on the islands this year.

How many more people need to die before we realise that our border controls don’t work?
