About 107,500 people arrived outside usual channels in July, the EU said, well above the prior record high of more than 70,000 set in June and over 3 times the number from a year ago. In the year to date, about 340,000 such irregular migrants have entered the EU and registered, up 175% vs. the same period a year ago, as turmoil in the Mideast and Africa sends waves of people to Europe looking for havens. For all of 2014, there were more than the 280,000 arrivals.
