The UN delegate to Libya, Martin Kobler, has slammed at the attack on the boat of the Doctors without Borders (Bourbon Argos) off the Libyan coast on Thursday.

On Twitter, Kobler said “I condemn the attack on boat of the Doctors without Borders.” Adding that there must be a guaranteed protection for the workers in the humanitarian and immigration fields.

“There are lots of people who die every single day.” He added.


On Thursday, gunmen attacked the charity-funded boat (Bourbon Argos) rescuing refugees in the Mediterranean Sea, shooting at international aid workers before boarding the vessel.
