Sweden said it expects to expel up to 80,000 migrants whose asylum requests will likely be rejected, as another 24 people including children drowned off Greece Thursday in a desperate bid to reach Europe.Of the 58,800 asylum requests handled by Swedish migration authorities last year, 55 percent were accepted.On Thursday, the bodies of 24 migrants, including 10 children, were discovered off the Greek island of Samos after their boat capsized and 11 others were still missing, the Greek coastguard said, a day after seven other bodies were found near the island of Kos.Concerns have been growing over conditions in Sweden's overcrowded asylum facilities, however, and on Tuesday officials called for greater security the day after an employee at a refugee center for unaccompanied youths was stabbed to death.Sweden's National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson earlier this week requested 4,100 additional officers and support staff to help counter terrorism, deport migrants and police asylum facilities.
