At least 50 migrants were found dead in the hold of a boat off the shores of Libya Wednesday, the latest asylum seekers to die attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea. So far this year, more than 2,000 people have died attempting the crossing. But Europe remains divided on how to tackle the rising numbers of migrants: Slovakia refuses to accept Muslims and Germany is seeing anti-immigrant protests as it tries to absorb some of the 800,000 migrants expected to arrive this year.
