FILE - In this July 4, 2012 file photo released by the Indonesian National Search And Rescue Agency, a wooden boat which is believed to have up to 180 asylum seekers on board floats on the waters off Christmas Island, Australia.

For many migrants, the price of haste may be death. (AP Photo/Indonesian National Search and Rescue Agency, File) less
