A United Nations agency found that the U.S.-Mexico border was the deadliest land migrant route in the world.

The International Organization for Migration said Tuesday that it had documented 686 deaths and disappearances of migrants traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border.

"The alarming figures are a stark reminder of the need for decisive action to create regular legal migration pathways," said Paul Dillon, a spokesperson for the IOM, to reporters in Geneva, Switzerland.

He claimed that the figure represents "the lowest estimates available" given limitations on reporting all deaths.
