Kuwait Times - - International -

BENGHAZI: At least 19 il­le­gal mi­grants were killed yes­ter­day and up to 79 in­jured in a road ac­ci­dent in the Libyan city of Bani Walid, a mil­i­tary source said. Among the dead were So­ma­lis and Eritre­ans who had been trav­el­ling in a truck packed with mi­grants, the source said. No more details were im­me­di­ately avail­able. Bani Walid, lo­cated south of Tripoli, is a hub for smug­glers to bring mi­grants from Libya’s south­ern sub-Sa­ha­ran neigh­bours to the coast from where they are shipped by boat to Italy.
