IOM: 15 migrants drown off Libya’s Sabratha

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said that 15 illegal migrants drowned on Wednesday off the coast of Sabratha.

The IOM added that the Libyan Coast Guard intercepted more than 70 other migrants in the Mediterranean and returned them to Libya.

It also pointed out that the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex)’s 100 million euros investment in drones to monitor the Mediterranean has not protected the lives of migrants.
