MOST OF FLEEING MIGRANTS ARE MEN
According to the UN, 72% of those fleeing to Europe in this crisis are men, only 13% women and 15% children.
Most of the migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Europe are adult men, according to the United Nations.
The number of migrants attempting the dangerous crossing has soared in the past two years, from about 22,000 in 2013 to about 380,000 so far this year. Seventy-two percent of them are adult men, while just 13 percent are women and 15 percent are children, the U.N. has calculated, based on reports from governments and the media.
