Poland : European Border and Coast Guard Agency publishes analysis for Western Balkans for Q2Print.
In the second quarter of this year, the number of migrants detected at the borders of Western Balkan countries plunged 88% from the previous three months to 26 488. The figure is slightly higher than in the first quarter of 2015, before the region experienced a massive increase in migrants who had previously arrived on the Greek islands from Turkey. Afghans became the top reported nationality, accounting for a 36% share of the total non-regional migration flow, while Syrians dropped to the second place with 16%.
Meanwhile, in the April-June period the number of people smugglers arrested increased by nearly a fifth from the first quarter to 307.
