48,000 migrants to Greece in five days
During five days there came 48,000 migrants and refugees to Greece, according to IOM. The number is the highest in one week ever, during the current Hijra*.

The record was set during the five days until Wednesday this week, says the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Thus, the number of migrants who have arrived in southern Europe so far this year, has grown to 681,000.

The number of migrants who have arrived just in Greece this year has topped half a million, the United Nations said.

The rate of people arriving has risen to 8,000 a day, the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees said, with many hoping to beat winter weather.

In Syria, the number of internally displaced people has dropped from 7.6 million to 6.3 million, according to UNHCR. One reason may be that many Syrians have fled to Europe.

The migrants who come to Greece takes further into central Europe via the Balkans, with the goal of reaching Germany, UK, or Scandinavia.

Meanwhile in Italy, so far in the month of October a total of 7,447 migrants have been rescued at sea in the Channel of Sicily. No deaths have been recorded since eight bodies (seven women; one man) were shipped on Monday into Taranto, brought by the Spanish ship Rio Segura, which carried another 633 survivors. Authorities discovered the eight victims in a rubber dinghy carrying 113 migrants. Their cause of death remains unknown, writes IOM.

* The Hijra or Hijrah, is the migration or journey of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and his followers (Muslims), to conquer new land.
