Libyan navy spokesperson, Ayoub Qassem said on Sunday that the coast guards of the western sector at the Zawiya refinery point saved 60 illegal immigrants, including 19 women, and 4 children, who were on a rubber boat with a broken-down engine.

Qassem said the rescue operation was carried out 7 miles north of Sorman, adding that the immigrants are different African and Arab nationalities and were transferred to the port of Zawiya refinery and then handed over to the Al-Nasr shelter.


The Libyan navy rescued last week, about 600 immigrants in three separate operations north of Garabulli and Khoms.
