Libyan Coast Guard rescues 112 illegal immigrants

Libyan Navy and Coast Guard personnel rescued Saturday 112 illegal immigrants, mostly African, off the Libyan coast.

The Libyan Interior Ministry said a team of coastguards managed to rescue the immigrants Saturday night as part of their humanitarian and security operations off the coast.

It added that the Libyan coastguards rescued the immigrants after receiving a distress call, adding that the coastguards did their job and saved the lives of the immigrants, who were disembarked later at Tripoli Naval Base before being sent to the Anti Illegal Immigration Center.

The immigrants, including five women and two underaged boys, were from Pakistan, Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Ghana and Nigeria.
