Ten bodies found in migrant boat

The Doctors Without Borders charity has said that Ten people were found dead in an overcrowded ship carrying migrants off the coast of Libya, and were believed to have suffocated

The charity said late on Tuesday that its Geo Barents rescue ship had picked up 99 survivors earlier in the day.

“At the bottom of the overcrowded wooden boat, 10 people were found dead,” tweeted the charity, known by its French initials MSF.

It described them as “10 avoidable deaths … 10 persons who died from suffocation, after 13 hours adrift at sea. The deadly central #Med route. How can we accept this in 2021?”
