Switzerland receives 40 refugees from Libya

Swiss authorities have announced the arrival of 40 refugees of the “most vulnerable” category who were stationed in Niger after being held in shelters for illegal migrants in Libya.

In a statement to SwissInfo, Swiss Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga said on Friday that her country would welcome 80 refugees from Libya as part of a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) plan.

 

The UNHCR reported the deportation of 1,300 refugees from Libya, 312 of which were given asylum in Italy, and a small number to Romania.
