UN reveals it expects 1.4 million migrants to have crossed the Mediterranean to Europe during 2015-16 - nearly DOUBLE its original estimate

Daily Mail
The UN says as many as 1.4million migrants may cross the border into Europe this year and next - nearly double its original estimates .
The UNHR - the UN's refugee agency - launched a funding appeal on September 8, based on estimates 400,000 migrants would come to Europe in 2015 and 450,000 next year.
But within days, that estimation was revised, and a new document seen today reveals that the number could be more than double the original estimate of 850,000 which it has planned for."
