Saving Lives at Sea – A two-week rescue mission with SOS MEDITERRANEE

Human Rights Watch
4 December, 2017

An excellent Human Rights Watch report, with striking photos and videos, on how lives are saved at sea.

“The Mediterranean is the deadliest migration route in the world, with over 15,000 deaths recorded since 2014. So far this year almost 3,000 have gone missing or died, including 26 Nigerian girls in one tragic incident. That so many are willing to risk their lives is a testament to their desperation and determination to escape persecution, violence, and hardship at home. And it speaks volumes about the brutality asylum seekers and other migrants face in Libya. “
