"The EU's border agency has accused charities operating in the Mediterranean of colluding with people smugglers, according to confidential reports seen by the Financial Times. The accusations from Frontex bring to the fore a long-simmering dispute between EU officials and non-governmental organisations over how to resolve a migration crisis that has caused the deaths of 4,700 people this year alone. Frontex put its concerns in a confidential report last month, raising the idea that migrants had been given 'clear indications before departure on the precise direction to be followed in order to reach the NGOs’ boats.'"
