37 migrants drown off Libya’s coast


On Sunday, a boat carrying hundreds of migrants capsized just off Libya’s coastline, killing at least 37 people, adding to the migrants’ crisis which has resulted in Europe being inundated with migrants.

According to Reuters, a spokesman for the Red Crescent in Tripoli said “We had reports this morning that there are seven bodies of illegal migrants that sank off Khoms (east of Tripoli)…but we don’t have any details how many migrants were on board,”

Initially seven bodies were reported, then some local fisherman discovered 30 more bodies in the same area, nearby the city of Khoms.
