A new big immigration tragedy in the Mediterranean Sea

2076

The fact is considered by the UN officials a “tragedy on an enormous scale.” According to survivors, the three boats had left Libya on Sunday carrying refugees from countries like Iraq, Syria and Mali hoping to get to Europe but were swallowed up by the waves. Another boat left Libya on Sunday. Even its 107 passengers were rescued by Italian Coast Guards on Monday after their boat was capsized by heavy waves, 29 of them died of hypothermia. The illegal migrants are permanently in danger, this is a known fact and even an assumed risk. Their life is sometimes saved by the intervention of marine patrols. However its not their first role and obligation. The temptation to emigrate remains a big problem even in our century reflecting discrepance between countries development or consequence of wars or social inequity.
