At least 90 migrants, mainly Pakistani, are feared dead after their boat capsized off the coast of Libya.
Security officials in the western Libyan town of Zurawa said two Libyans and one Pakistani had survived.
“We are told that two survivors swam to shore, and one person was rescued by a fishing boat,” Ms Headon told reporters.
10 bodies have washed up on Libyan shores so far, 8 of the victims being Pakistanis and two from Libya.
The migrants were trying to enter Europe illegally.
Many NGOs (Non-government organisations) ferry migrants from the coast of Libya to the European mainland.
Western governments need to grow a backbone and urge people to stop making this deadly trip to Europe.
French President Macron is demanding that Britain takes MORE CALAIS MIGRANTS
It has been reported that the French President Emmanuel Macron is about to make two demands regarding the United Kingdom and the border at Calais that is effectively between the two nations.
According to the media, he will insist that the United Kingdom takes more of the migrants at Calais who are only there because they are trying to reach the UK.
On top of this, he also set to demand more money from the United Kingdom’s government for the operation of the border.
As Westmonster point out, British taxpayers have only recently been stung to the tune of more than TWO MILLION POUNDS for a wall around the port that doesn’t even lock properly.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb has allegedly said ‘I want to reach an additional protocol to these agreements and to take concrete measures to look after a certain number of costs by the British’ and that the UK must take in ‘a larger number of people, as regards to the reception of refugees and unaccompanied minors.’
For some reason, a lot of people are missing one very simple point when it comes to France and border control – the fact that it is part of the Schengen arrangement.
Therefore, if France is really that worried about its own borders, surely it might make sense to start by not being part of a system that allows so many to just ‘walk on in.’
