The surviving migrants said that the boat sank a few hours after the departure of Garabulli, East of Tripoli, after an explosion on it. It is noted that among the passengers were Moroccans and citizens of Yemen.
17-year-old Cobram, who survived, told that during the crossing he paid smugglers $ 400.
According to the captain of the coast guard, Libyan rescuers were forced to leave most of the bodies of migrants who died in the crash on Friday, “due to the lack of resources.”
Fishermen found the vessel and contacted the coast guard of Libya.
We will remind, earlier the head of the European Council Donald Tusk said that after a night of negotiations, EU countries agreed on a common policy towards refugees. The source Agency dpa in diplomatic circles reported that the refugee camps, rescued after crossing the sea, will be established in member countries of the European Union that will agree to that.
From these camps the migrants will be distributed also to those EU countries that are willing voluntarily to accept them. The EU intends to establish a refugee camp in one of the North African countries to reduce the flow of people funneling through the Mediterranean sea. It is not clear which countries are willing to accept refugees and to establish camps.
