Libyan coastguard catches 195 migrants
The Libyan coastguard picked up two boats of migrants bound for Europe yesterday, one of which was discovered during a routine patrol.
The vessel, found off the coast of Garabulli by members of Tripoli Coastguard who were on a reconnaissance mission, had 103 illegal immigrants on board. It was escorted back to Tripoli Port and the migrants were taken to an illegal immigration detention centre in the capital’s Abu Saleem district.
The coastguard also rescued a further 92 migrants yesterday after the boat they were aboard got into difficulties. These migrants were also taken to the Abu Saleem facility.
