Desperate African Migrants Now Trudge Across Icy Italian Alpine Route Across Europe To Reach France (Photos)

Icy climb: African migrants head for the Pian del Colle crossing in north-west Italy
In the freezing high passes of the Italian Alps, migrants march slowly up an icy incline as they head for France.
The mountains have become an unlikely route for Africans looking for a new life across the border.
Thousands are thought to have tried to traverse the range over the last few months alone, wearing clothing that is unlikely to protect them from the extreme conditions.

Migrants take Alpine route across Europe 

In the freezing high passes of the Italian Alps, migrants march slowly up an icy incline as they head for France.

The mountains have become an unlikely route for Africans looking for a new life across the border.

Thousands are thought to have tried to traverse the range over the last few months alone, wearing clothing that is unlikely to protect them from the extreme conditions.

Faced with the policies of Italy’s Right-wing government, asylum seekers who arrive by boat on the country’s Mediterranean shores have headed north instead to reach France.

From there they can move on to Germany, Spain, Belgium, Holland and – ultimately for many – Britain.

Faced with the prospect of mass immigration, police at several border posts are increasingly sending arrivals back to Italy. As a result, migrants are using mountain passes, ski resorts and hiking trails to avoid official checks. 

Up to half a million migrants are thought to be in Italy, despite the fall in the number arriving – usually from lawless Libya – in boats across the Mediterranean.
