Migrants and refugees, most of them from Eritrea, jump into the water from a crowded wooden boat during a rescue operation in the Mediterranean, about 13 miles (21km) north of Sabratha. Thousands of people were rescued from more than 20 boats by members of the NGO Proactiva Open Arms.

European nations have tightened border controls, shut down the Balkan route used by hundreds of thousands of people, negotiated an agreement with Turkey to curb new arrivals and taken other measures to curb the influx of migrants. But many problems still remain with Europe’s uneven response to the crisis. (AP Photo/Emilio Morenatti)
