Dreadful! Bodies of 74 Italy-Bound African Migrants Wash Ashore In Libya

Dreadful! Bodies of 74 Italy-Bound African Migrants Wash Ashore In Libya

According to Mohamed al-Misrati, Red Crescent spokesman, the bodies were retrieved on Monday and composed mainly of adult males, except for three women.

"We don't have an appropriate vehicle to transport the bodies or a cemetery for unidentified bodies to bury them in", the group said.

Dozens of bodies were seen lined up along the shore in white and black body bags in the western city of Zawiya. A local volunteer said the toll could rise, as some bodies had been spotted in the sea but aid workers had not yet been able to recover them.

Last week, Fabrice Leggeri, director of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, said the route saw record numbers of migrant drownings previous year.

"We have to be ready to face the same number", he said. The figure is likely higher because many deaths go unrecorded, the agency's director, Fabrice Leggeri, said last week. That compares with 2,869 deaths in 2015 and 3,161 in 2014. Leggeri said that more and more smugglers are using poorly built smaller boats, and packing them up with migrants to increase revenue.

Kim Jong Un's estranged brother killed in Malaysia
The head of Kuala Lumpur Hospital's forensics department, Mohamad Shah Mahmood, was taking part in the autopsy, according to AFP. Since rising to power following the death of his father in 2011, Kim Jong-un has proved ruthless in removing enemies and rivals.

The Zawiya coast guard posted a video that showed the refugees' boat, with no engine, as the first bodies were recovered.

"And in fact, although still early, the numbers of people that have successfully made the journey is higher than it was past year". There have been many cases of refugees and migrants being tortured, forced into labour and raped whilst being held in the country. About 1,000 were rescued from the water by the Italian Coast Guard in January.

The European leaders supported the Libyan government from Tripoli and suggested a tighter collaboration with the African countries.

His organization, also known by its French acronym MSF, has aided in the sea rescues. Authorities worry this early incident could mean even more deaths this year.
