European Union leaders hail migrant plan as 100 more feared dead at sea

Survivors report 220 migrants drowned off Libya in recent days UNHCR

Survivors report 220 migrants drowned off Libya in recent days UNHCR

A Spanish Maritime Rescue Service vessel disembarked at mid-day on Friday 44 sub-Saharan African migrants, including three women, at the port of Tarifa. "All five of them are missing", Amri Swileh, a survivor said.

In 2014, there was a surge of migrants fleeing to Europe and more than 650,000 migrants would have crossed the central Mediterranean, but has slowed since July, when the smuggling networks on Libya's side of the Mediterranean coast was partially disrupted under the pressure of Italian authorities. "It should be a shared responsibility across the Mediterranean Basin, with due respect for the safety and dignity of all people on the move".

As previously reported "FACTS", Italy and Malta refused to accept a ship full of refugees.

An additional 345 migrants had been brought ashore in Tripoli and were receiving humanitarian assistance, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) wrote on Twitter.

Macron said such platforms could be "occasionally" set up in agreement with the concerned countries in places where the European Union could send staff to process asylum requests.

At least 270 undocumented migrants have been rescued off Libya's western coast, the navy said on Saturday.

Showing his bruised arms, the 26-year-old said smugglers threatened to shoot him and forced him onto the boat which was just eight metres long.

While Honda was dignified in defeat, Japan are entitled to feel they deserved better after a superbly disciplined performance. The coach made the changes because he wanted more power in the middle and we managed to bring that.

Coastguards in Libya have confirmed that no less than 100 migrants droned after a boat sank off the coat in Tripoli.

Close to 10,200 migrants have been taken back to Libya so far in 2018, Petre said. She has been adamant that Germany should not take unilateral action for fear that it could trigger a cascade of uncoordinated decisions.

"We can not permanently accept this situation", he said. The agreement will see reception centres established within the European Union as well as the distribution of refugees among member states.

"This is in fact the easiest part of the task compared to what awaits us on the ground when we start implementing it", Tusk said. More than 2,000 were returned by the Libyan coast guard last week. "That is against our values, worldwide law and European law".

"More than 100 illegal migrants are considered missing".

In recent years, Libya has become a major transit route for migrants trying to reach Europe by sea. Some of those screening centers would be outside Europe, perhaps in North Africa, to screen migrants before they arrive.
