It has been another deadly weekend for migrants trying to reach the shores of Europe. On Saturday, the bodies of at least 20 African migrants were recovered off of Melilla, a Spanish enclave in northern Africa. Meanwhile, on Friday, 90 migrants are feared to have died when their boat capsized off the coast of Libya. Leonard Doyle is a spokesperson at the International Organization for Migration.
Leonard Doyle: “It’s an absolutely shocking tragedy that seems to have occurred off of Libya, when we think as many as 90 Pakistani migrants, trying to reach a better life, ended up, through the criminal act of smugglers, drowning.”
