Migrant crisis: ‘Hundreds Of died’ in shipwrecks off Libya.Around 240 transients are accepted suffocated in two wrecks off the bank of Libya, movement authorities say.
No bodies have so far been recouped.
More than 4,200 transients have kicked the bucket making the unsafe excursion over the Mediterranean Sea this year, International Organization of Migration representative Leonard Doyle says.
The UN has cautioned 2016 could be the deadliest for transients making the excursion.
Almost 330,000 vagrants have crossed the ocean so far this year, contrasted and more than one million in 2015.
Many of those killed in the latest two incidents are believed to be migrants from West Africa.
Ms Sami said 29 people had survived one of the shipwrecks but about 120 others were missing, feared dead. In the second, two people were picked up after swimming for safety but another 120 migrants were still missing.
Smugglers who organise the treacherous journeys overload flimsy boats and often send them off in bad weather, the UN says.
Italy has seen an increase in the trafficking of migrants from Libya ever since an EU-Turkey agreement to halt migrants travelling to the Greek islands came into force in March.We hope You Will like This Post.stay Tuned with us and keep visiting www.chilmaza.com For more latest & recent Updates.
