Eight migrants suffocate to death in lorry container in Zuwara

Zuwara Security Directorate announced on Monday the death of eight illegal immigrants as a result of suffocation inside a lorry container in Zuwara, arresting the perpetrators after being identified.

The Directorate on its official page said the migrants were suffocated as a result of gasoline inside the truck, which resulted in the deaths of 6 children, a woman and a man, noting that the truck was carrying about 100 migrants.

The Directorate said it had rescued the remaining migrants, who were in serious conditions, and taken to the Zuwara marine hospital, noting that the immigrants are of different nationalities.


The Zuwara Security Directorate has announced the arrest of illegal immigrants in the past period after a raid on a den used to smuggle migrants to Europe.
