Libya Stops 250 irregular migrants from departing country


Libya has Stopped 250 irregular migrants from departing from the country.

The Libyan Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement issued out that Four suspects connected with an international human smuggling network were nabbed as part of the operation.

The 250 irregular migrants were about to be taken out of the country by sea for obtaining financial benefits.

Operations against irregular migration in Libya gained momentum after at least 79 irregular migrants died when their boat capsized and sank off the coast of southwestern Greece on June 14.

Libya is considered a main transit point for migrants on their way to Europe seeking a better life.
