Why So Many Eritreans Are Fleeing To Europe

ROSENHEIM, GERMANY - AUGUST 31:  A young migrant couple from Eritrea look on a map of Europe as they prepare to depart with their son after they completed the registration process at a center for migrants at a facility of the German Federal Police (Bundespolizei) on August 31, 2015 in Rosenheim, Germany. German police monitor trains arriving from the Balkans and from Italy that go through Rosenheim and currently detain around 350 people a day for travelling without a passport. The police register the migrants, mostly from countries including Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea, fingerprint them and check whether any are already in the European asylum-applicants or criminal databases. From there the migrants are free to travel within Germany to reception centers where they can apply for asylum. Up to 1,600 migrants are currently arriving in Bavaria in southern Germany a day and will seek asylum. Germany is expecting to receive 800,000 asylum-seeking migrants this year and is struggling to cope with the record number.  (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
