In Libya, the coast guard says as many as 100 people may have died when a boat carrying refugees seeking to reach Europe sunk off Libya’s coast Tuesday. Those who did survive were brought to a naval base in Tripoli, Libya. This is one of the survivors, Zainab Abdesalam.

Zainab Abdesalam: “I feel so disappointed, because I could not make it to where I want to go. I feel so disappointed, and I don’t want to go to prison. I don’t want to go to prison. I don’t want to go to prison.”
