FILE - In this Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013 file photo, a man, covered in a blanket, is helped to disembark as he arrives at the Valletta harbor, Malta after a Maltese brought 143 survivors from a capsized smugglers' boat, most of the migrants in the latest tragedy were fleeing civil war in Syria. A sharp rise in the number of Syrians attempting the perilous sea voyage over the past three months highlights the crushing life-and-death decisions facing many who fled to Egypt to escape Syria’s armed conflict, according to rights group Amnesty International.
