Mi­grants’ bod­ies wash up on beach

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE bod­ies of at least 74 African mi­grants have washed ashore in western Libya in the lat­est tragedy at sea along a per­ilous traf­fick­ing route to Europe.

The bod­ies were found near the city of Zawiya on Mon­day, a Libyan Red Cres­cent spokesman said, adding he feared more might sur­face.

He said a torn rub­ber boat, the kind that usu­ally car­ries up to 120 peo­ple, was found nearby.

The Red Cres­cent said there are bod­ies still float­ing out at sea but it has no means to re­trieve them.
