Migration into Italy has declined this year in the light of a deal between Italy and armed groups in Libya. As reports about growing slave trade, refugee exploitation, dire conditions for migrants or opacity of the EU Africa Trust fund increased, the EU, UN and the African Union agreed to create an emergency fund to curb human smuggling.
