Hard Numbers: 1,000 migrants reach Greece from Turkey in 24-hours

3: Israelis headed to the polls today for their third general election in less than a year, after the last two elections failed to break the country's political stalemate. Incumbent Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu's Likud party appears to be the winner, but it remains to be seen whether Bibi can form a coalition government in the 120-seat Knesset, Israel's parliament.

15: Iraq's prime minister-designate Mohammed Allawi has stepped down from that post after legislators, mired in political infighting, failed to approve his cabinet. A new prime minister must now be chosen within 15 days, plunging the country into another stage of chaos and insecurity.

389 million: The US Congress has approved $389 million for AIDS relief in Zambia starting in October. Women in Zambia are disproportionately affected by HIV, making up around 60 percent of the infected population in that country.

1,000: Greek officials said Monday that about 1,000 migrants had reached its eastern Aegean islands from Turkey in the past 24 hours alone. It's the latest sign of the intensifying humanitarian crisis on Europe's doorstep since Turkey opened its doors for migrants to leave its territory for the EU last week after a major escalation in northern Syria.
