    Migrants queue for food in an abandoned factory in the western Serbian town of Sid, near Serbia’s border with European Union member Croatia, Monday. Several hundred migrants are camping along Serbia’s borders, exposed to harsh winter weather and sleeping rough in make-shift shelters as they push on with their desperate bid to reach Western Europe.

UNITED NATIONS — An estimated 258 million people have left their birth countries and are now living in other nations — an increase of 49 percent since 2000, says a U.N. report on international migration released Monday.
