#AceWorldNews – TRIPOLI – may 11 – At least 40 people have died as a boat carrying migrants sank off Libya‘s coast, east of the capital, Tripoli, Reuters reports, citing a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

Fifty-one people were rescued.

Libya’s porous borders with its sub-Saharan neighbours and its proximity to Italy and Malta across the Mediterranean have made the North African country a common transit route for migrants trying to reach Europe.
