70 migrants drowned as boat capsizes off Sabratha shores


Local sources have reported that a boat filled with migrants bound to Europe has capsized off Sabratha shores Saturday morning.

70 migrants at least drowned and 26 others were rescued after their already wrecked boat smashed in the waters.

Libyan coasts have become a favorable take-off point for migrants to Europe, especially after blocking the route between Turkey and Greece.
