At least ninety migrants feared drowned in Libyan boat accident


After a brief halt, the news of Libyan migrant boat accidents has again reappeared in the mainstream media.

Shockingly, this time, it has been the news about the death of nearly ninety people in the Libyan boat accident has jolted the heart of the listeners and readers.

As per the report, most of those feared drowned in the accident have been those coming from the Arabian country of Pakistan.

The incident has come to light after three survivors who reached the shore escaping the danger informed the authorities about the disaster.

According to the report, apart from the Pakistani people, there have been some Libyans also in the drowned boat.

It is learned that of the three survivors who escaped from the disaster, at least two have been Libyans.

The dangerous sea route between Libya and the Southern Europe is the prime route selected by the preponderance of the migrants who aspire to reach the European continent in search of a better life.

In the recent years, tens of thousands of migrants, mostly those coming from African regions, have been downed to death in this dangerous sea route.

In order to avoid these unfortunate disasters, the European Union authorities have reached an agreement with the Libyan costal guards.

The new incident like the one that happened now indicates that the agreement has failed to achieve desired output.
