United Natiins Agency, IOM has said at least 90 Migrants are feared drowned off the coast of Libya after a boat capsized.

 Bodies of two Libyans and eight Pakistanis have been seen washed up the shores of Libya, IOM’s Olivia Headon said.

 Two people were able to swim to safety and another rescued by a fishing boat.

 Sub Sahara African Migrants from Libya to Italy dropped significantly since the barbaric slavery issue in Lybia was revealed. But number of Pakistani nationals trying to cross the Mediterranean via Libya to Europe have increased significantly.

In general migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya to Italy dropped significantly too, due to the pressure mounted on what is left of Libyan government by Italian and European Governments to block migrants departures from their shore.
