May 10, 2021

Still victims among migrants. Twenty-three people are missing after a shipwreck, UNHCR denounces in a tweet in which it states that so far the body of a migrant has been found. 42 survivors were brought to Tripoli by the Libyan Coast Guard. UNHCR, together with the IRC, the International Rescue Committeee, is treating survivors who have burns in different parts of the body. “Of the 66 people who called us this morning only 42 survived, one died and 23 are missing. We lost contact at 8.12. We have no more words to denounce the killings by the border regime” writes Alarm Phone that this morning had raised the alarm for 6 boats in danger in the Mediterranean.
