Spain saves 26 migrants from sinking boat in Atlantic Ocean

Erik Tate | 14 April, 2017, 19:07

In a response to questions from Left Party lawmakers, the German government says it considers "imposing restrictive measures" on European Union exports of boats, engines and vehicles to Libya to be an appropriate measure to crack down on people smuggling.

Twenty-three migrants were rescued around 6 miles off the coast after authorities received a distress call Thursday morning.

Libyan coast guard say 97 migrants are missing after their boat heading to Europe failed to cross the testing Mediterranean Sea.

It's understood the boat carrying African nationals collapsed.

Tens of thousands of migrants, most from sub-Saharan African countries, try to reach the shores of Spain and Italy by boat each year.

Minister: Iraq to boost crude oil production by year's end
But the price gain has also encouraged USA shale oil producers, which are not part of the pact, to boost output. WTI crude oil found resistance ahead of $50.97/b which represented the 50% retracement of the March selloff.

An AFP photographer said survivors had been given food and medical care at Tripoli port before being transferred to a migrant centre east of the capital.

In February, the bodies of 74 drowned migrants washed ashore from the Mediterranean in Libya, as thousands tackle the risky sea crossing to Europe every year.

At least 590 of them have died or have gone missing along the Libyan coast so far this year, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Mass drownings like the one feared to have happened Thursday are becoming more common as traffickers pack as many migrants as possible onto rickety boats.
