wimbledon in the final later today but there's more at stake than just another grand slam title we'll take a look at the latest record and sometimes. i'm calm assman thanks for joining us to united nations agencies are urging europe to take more responsibility for migrants in the mediterranean the un's refugee agency and the international organization for migration have called on the european union nations to relaunch rescue missions that saved people from drowning earlier this year the e.u. suspended its main naval operation that carried out these rescues critics say that is having deadly consequences. bodies of drowned migrants have brought to the chinese in shore 82 people went missing when the boat sank on july 1st
10:02 am
most have since been or tray from the water dead the migrants started their journey in war torn libya and drifted into ginny's in waters before sinking one of the few survivors remembers have that calls for help went unanswered. have not and i don't doubt that he and i get older you know pins in pick us up in the water on the. it was sinking. but they did not answer our call. on the. operations of the european union effort to curb migrant flows across the mediterranean stopped rescuing shipwrecked people in march and italy's populace government has shut ports to private rescue ships the country's interior minister says his policy has been a success. i mean you know i mean prevention is better than the cure and therefore we're down from 80000 the rivals in this period in 27 seen just 17000 last year
10:03 am
just 3000 this year so you know that all of that i mean. the private rescue organizations have been challenging south in these hard line approach. there was arrested after she illegally docked the sea watch 3 italian island of lampedusa with 40 rescued migrants on board and the long term hope that you will change its policy and that will be a safe possibility for people refugees in particular to cross station so that some rescue will not be needed anymore. in the short term however we hope that the criminalization of rescuers will stop so that those who want to help the people in need able to do so without any fear of 1st time and channel. e.u. rescue operations were halted because the block was on they were to agree on how to distribute migrants amongst the member states so for now the private rescue groups
10:04 am
i ships like to say watch 3 of the best to save migrants lives it's a. in that report we heard italian interior minister matteo salvini discussing how many migrants have arrived in italy in recent years let's take a look now at the numbers across europe fewer people are arriving in europe by sea compared with the peak of the migration crisis in 2015 even so nearly 30000 people arrived in the 1st half of this year now these here are the 3 main sea routes to get to europe via greece via spain and finally through italy and malta the number of people traveling from turkey to greece has also been falling but it's still the most common route by sea and increasing number of migrants are making the journey from morocco to spain but it's still not considered a mass migration route and relatively few migrants are traveling from libya to
10:05 am
italy and malta just over 4000 people but for those who try it this is the most dangerous route more than 400 people have drowned this here for more on this we are joined now by mateo villa he's a research fellow and migration specialist at the italian institute for international political studies in milan now operation sofia that's the e.u.'s mission in the mediterranean it's still active but it no longer undertakes these sea rescues what exactly was behind that decision. yeah i mean do you have to you know bring down all rescues but actually it's gone on much more. than we thought for instance the yusufiyah was meant to the trafficking business as muddling business so destroying boats but clearly given the. duty to rescue people then you should have rescued people and he brought actually sure to italy
10:06 am
marked out another country 35000 people in that team clearly into crossfire of you know the police going back to reading my short suit what happened yet it's being discontinued at sea on it goes on. here but you know the decision march this year but the truth is sophia has not done rescue. training necessary when it came. to power in italy last year the rescue said be done by any ship in the operations of fear so there's been quite a consensus throughout europe there given the current situation in italy. even before there was put into police actions it's like we have a few problems with us and we apologize for that but let's go back now to 2014 since then see missions by the e.u. by italy and by n.g.o.s they rescued tens of thousands of migrants really saving
10:07 am
a lot of lives however italian interior minister matteo salvini says not making these rescues is actually saving lives and how do you square those 2 argument. i mean it's it's hard to say it's true that. not at sea or not or with the to do rescues it doesn't appear to change much in terms of the research of of it see india and its number of people to the 20 names you resign it seems to me. it's going up to 88 percent but it doesn't mean it doesn't mean that just and rescue operation is being discontinued because. up to 8 percent before it was 2 percent so it seems to be to time systematically but there's no precise good relation between engineers or t.v.'s and this i mean sunnis not dead wrong there it's true that all research risk operations are actually brought down there is good death and. there it's not just n.g.o.s and private rescuers it's also probably
10:08 am
rescues that are sort of rescues that have been discontinued just brought up the risk of dead sea. from the italian institute for international political studies thank you very much. turning now to the u.s. where undocumented immigrants are bracing for deportation raids this weekend president donald trump has confirmed that red are all immigration agents will target thousands of the estimated 1000000 people with removal orders critics say that may include those living u.s. years and families who have not yet had a court here trump said the raids will focus mainly on criminals. here's what the president himself had to say. hundreds of people know about a major operation the word gets out it gets out it starts on sunday and they're going to take people out are they going to bring a back to their countries or they're going to take criminals out put him in prison
10:09 am
or put him in prison in the countries they came from were focused on criminals but we get they came in illegally they have to go out. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world at least 26 people are dead after al shabaab militants stormed a hotel in somalia among the dead or a politician foreigners and journalists security forces in kismayo say they ended the siege and killed the militants the group has been trying to topple the government for more than a decade police in new zealand say that a buyback of automatic weapons has begun successfully gun owners in the city of christ church handed in more than 200 firearms automatic and semi automatic weapons were banned in the wake of deadly attacks on 2 mosques in christchurch in march. activists in hong kong are holding fresh protests in the town and near the border with mainland china they're demonstrating against the activities of traders from
