Let's get started.One of the biggest stories we've covered this academic year centers on the millions of migrants and refugees streaming into Europe, the most since World War II.Some are leaving war-torn countries behind them.Some are running from terrorists and their control.Some are just looking for a better life than their home countries have to offer.Many of these people are trying to get to Europe by cross the Mediterranean Sea.It's dangerous.They're often overloaded on small boats and over the past week, at least 65 people have died trying to cross.But hundreds are still missing from several shipwrecks.And officials are afraid that more than 700 lives might have been lost.It could have been worst.Italian authorities say they've rescued more than 14,000 people in the Mediterranean, just in the past week.The overcrowded boats aren't the only thing officials have to watch for.

The route from Libya to Europe across these waters is really exploding, especially since Greece and Turkey cracked down on their shores.You could be talking about 100,000 people trying to cross the Mediterranean.But that's not the only problem. ISIS are trying to get in on it.Smuggling Jihadis to Europe.This trade in human souls is awful enough until you think that perhaps ISIS are using this passage of human life into Europe to try and infiltrate the continent with sleeper cells.A smuggler said it begun about two months ago, 52 Tunisians tried to travel from Libya to Europe in the last four night, he said.And he was also offered 40,000 by an ISIS leader to take 20 ISIS people across, but he declined.So, ISIS already control about a tenth of Libya's huge coastline, about 4,000 to 6,000 fighters are in that area, but the U.S. thinks many in the main stronghold of Sirte.They've been helped by Libya being in chaos, with three different governments now claiming they should be in charge.
