The UN: 90 migrants died in a new tragedy in the Mediterranean


More than 90 irregular migrants have died in another tragedy in the Mediterranean, said the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi.


In a tweet on Sunday, Grandi alluded to the double standards adopted by European countries on the refugee issue.

He added: “Europe has proven its ability to host 4 million refugees from Ukraine generously and effectively.

It must now urgently consider how to apply this to the refugees and other migrants knocking on its doors.”

And on Saturday, Doctors Without Borders announced the death of more than 90 irregular migrants after their boat sank in international waters in the Mediterranean after they set off from the Libyan coast several days before the accident.

She explained that a commercial tanker rescued 4 people on Saturday morning, who in turn reported that the boat was carrying at least 100 people.


Libya, on the Mediterranean Sea, is a transit point for many irregular migrants to Europe.

While many of them are exposed to drowning because of the old boats used by people smugglers to transport them.
