    African migration 'a trickle' thanks to trafficking ban

    The number of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean for Europe has been dropping and that is partly because of tougher measures introduced on the migrant routes, as Mike Thomson reports from Niger.

    The report outlines several measures that have reduced the flow of people to Europe.

    These include tougher penalties for traffickers , help in returning people back,advice on setting up a business and education programmes.

    It seems a more humane and holistic approach than building a wall.

    would depend on what the "tougher penalties" are. i fail to believe simply "banning" the traffic they'll stop.

    i mean, that's like banning people from speeding.

    YOu missed the sticky note:

    "Merged about 30 threads in this one forum JUST from today.. Topics on the shutdown showdown, what is a wall, emergency powers, all those stories. Just because you have a comment -- doesn't mean there should be a brand new thread... Just because a different media source weighs in -- don't need a new thread.

    We're cutting lots of slack on the "on topic" rule here. Don't want this place to look like Twitter. Bad enough y'all are talking past each other when you're TOGETHER in one thread on a topic. Don't need to make that worse by having 4 or 6 simultaneous shouting matches on every daily outrage...

    Gonna start closing/warning threads on folks who are abusing the thread creation button and NOT checking the listings before they post. Use judgement and courtesy please.. "
