Bodies of African migrants found washed up the coast of Libya

The bodies of at least 85 people who drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea were found washed up on beaches near the Libyan city of Zuwarah. According to Red Crescent official Al-Khamis Al-Bosaifi, the bodies were already in a state of decomposition, making it difficult to determine when they had drowned.



The bodies of two children were among those found on the beaches. He said that the migrants looked to be from sub-Saharan Africa. On Tuesday, the UN refugee agency said at least 880 people drowned over the past week following a series of shipwrecks as departures from the North African coast towards Italy surged.
