FILE  - In this Saturday, June 30, 2018 file photo, an Open Arms lifeguard gives a thumbs-up to a migrant at the other end of a rubber boat in the middle of a rescue operation some 30 nautical miles off the coast of Libya in the Mediterranean Sea. The U.N. refugee agency says people smugglers are taking greater risks to ferry their human cargo toward Europe as Libya’s coast guard increasingly intercepts boats carrying migrants, increasing the likelihood that those on board may die on the Mediterranean journey. That’s one of the key findings from the latest UNHCR report about efforts to reach Europe. (AP Photo/Renata Brito, File)
