99 migrants were rescued and seven bodies brought to shore, including that of a little girl after a boat capsized just off the coast of Tripoli on Friday, September 18. A Libyan tanker, Anwaar Al Khalij spotted the migrants some 6kms off Tripoli’s main harbour at about 1pm and diverted to rescue the migrants.



Many of the 106 people on board had ended up in the water by then and some drowned instantly. Eventually 99 people were rescued and the bodies of seven people, including that of three year old girl. All of the people on board were from Africa but their nationality could not be confirmed at the time of writing. The ship sailed into Tripoli’s seaport about an hour and a half later, where teams from the Libya Red Crescent and the coast guard received the survivors, many of whom were still under shock. The bodies were transferred to Dar Al-Rahma in Tripoli Hospital for autopsy.
