Médecins Sans Frontières recently released the news after several days of being ignored.

The press office of the Astalli Center announced that 100 people died in a shipwreck off the coast of Libya, on September 1.

The regrettable event was recently reported by Médecins Sans Frontières, an organization that collected some testimonies from the survivors rescued by the Libyan coast guard and who was later transferred to the port town of Khoms, east of Tripoli, on September 2.

Among the victims, there were twenty children, including two of 17 months. So far, only two bodies have been recovered.

According to the information gathered, two rafts left in the morning from Libya with more than 160 people on board: these are Sudanese, Malians, Nigerians, Cameroonians, Ghanaians, Libyans, Algerians and Egyptians.

“The first boat stopped due to an engine failure, while ours continued to sail, but began to deflate around one in the afternoon, with 165 adults and 20 children inside,” said one survivor.

According to the story of the survivor, “only 55 people survived from the boat.” Then, the Libyan coastguard intervened to rescue the survivors and shipwrecked, then take them to Libya.

“Unfortunately, we pay a very high price in terms of human lives due to the lack of rescue operations at sea, after all the NGOs present have been forced to suspend their search and rescue activities, if we do not immediately take new European policies that put the life and dignity of people at the center, unfortunately, there is a risk that it will be the first in a tragic series of shipwrecks, “says Father Camillo Ripamonti, president of Centro Astalli, who adds:

“We request the immediate activation of humanitarian channels for those who have the right to apply for asylum in Europe, visas and entrance fees that allow a safe management of migratory flows to the European Union and immediately, an appropriate operation that welcomes the forced to flee of a burning Libya. ”
