> The {*filter*}ian embassy in Rome has estimated that there are more than

> Most of the {*filter*}s who cannot afford a plane ticket set off on their
> journey north overland, crossing the desert in beat-up jeeps or trucks
> to reach Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia or Libya. From there only a short
> journey across the Mediterranean Sea stands between them and Spain,
> Italy or Greece. One {*filter*} said that he paid over $1,000 to reach

> "I have been unemployed for years," said Cheick Keita, a 30 year old

> A French publication 'Alternatives Economiques' said in a report on

> "I am going there to scrounge. There at least I will get money", said
