Migrant crisis: Egypt becomes new gateway to Europe

In this edition we look at a new and dangerous migrant route by sea into Europe. With the "Balkan route" via Turkey officially closed, and growing instability in Libya, people smugglers have quickly adapted. The new route takes migrants from the Egyptian coast, where many Syrians have temporarily sought refuge, across the Mediterranean. Our team in Cairo and Alexandria have been meeting those who continue to dream of Europe, despite the risks.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Laura Burloux and Claire Pryde.
