At least thirty migrants come to after shipwreck off Libya
At least thirty migrants are Wednesday to life after their ship off the coast of Libya omkantelde. According to the Italian coast guard were five hundred people on board.
About two hundred sailors died in the Mediterranean Sea. Rescue workers from various organisations knew most of the people safely out of the water. The search for survivors is still in full swing.
Chris Catrambone, founder of the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), reports on Twitter that the accident of “many” infants have died. The bodies shall be, inter alia, with a helicopter of the Italian coast guard transferred to reddingschepen.
The migrantenschip capsized presumably because of a big wave, or because the passengers flock to one side of the vessel moved. Rescue workers have Wednesday their hands full with fifteen vessels containing a total of 1.700 migrants.
