100 Egyptian refugees missing in Libya desert

It has been reported that as many as 100 Egyptian refugees have gone missing in the Libyan desert after fleeing the chaos in their country following this summer’s military coup.

Libya is still suffering from its own political instability, and is also having to deal with countless tragedies in which hundreds of refugees leaving from its shores on their way to the Italian island of Lampedusa have drowned. These numbers also include many Libyan and Palestinian men, women and children.

According to the al-Masry al-Youm news website, the Egyptian refugees disappeared on the Tobruk-Ajdabiya route. Libya has deployed 26 vehicles to search for the refugees, and so far five bodies have been found.
