AUGUSTA, ITALY - OCTOBER 15: Recently arrived and rescued North African men in Sicily await processing by Italian immigration authorities on October 15, 2014. For all these migrants, this is the very first step toward official asylum application. After being checked by doctors individually, the migrants are divided into lines of men and women. Many of the Western African male migrants are escaping the growing numbers of conscripting militias who operate from Syria and Iraq all the way across sub-Saharan Africa to places such as Burkina Faso, Niger, and Nigeria.(Photo by Giles Clarke/Getty Images)
