The UN says almost 300 children are estimated to have died or disappeared this year while attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa to Europe.

The new report by the UN children’s agency warned, however, that many shipwrecks leave no survivors or go unrecorded, making the true number impossible to verify.

Unicef is calling for more safe and legal routes for young people to claim asylum and for better efforts to rescue people at sea.

The report also calls for much more to be done to address what’s causing so many children to flee their home countries and risk their lives.
