EU border agency Frontex said Tuesday that 710,000 people fleeing war and poverty entered the European Union in the first nine months of this year — more than double the number in all of 2014.

Frontex said that in September alone, some 170,000 people were detected entering the bloc, as Europe faces its biggest refugee crisis since World War II.
