IOM plans to help Libya deport illegal migrants back to their homelands


The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said it had helped representatives from seven African embassies in Libya to visit Salah Eddeen shelter center for illegal migrants in Tripoli, which includes 350 migrants from west Africa.

The IOM said that it had coordinated with the Libyan authorities in order to see the migrants conditions and to discuss the possibility of deporting them back to their homelands.

IOM also added that most of the illegal migrants had expressed their wish to return to their countries.

It also explained that this visit is part of the organization’s program to help migrants, who have been for so long stranded inside Libya, to go back and lead a normal life in their native countries.
