Since then, hundreds of people have been sailing to Europe almost every day at the risk of their lives by sea. At least 130 people were killed when a boat capsized off the coast of Libya on Wednesday.

The French social organization SOS Mediterranee said three boats were in danger in the rough Mediterranean on Wednesday. Upon receiving the news, the agency launched an operation in the rough sea of ​​6 feet wave on Thursday. Three commercial ships, including the agency’s own Ocean Viking, were rescued off the coast of Tripoli in northeastern international waters. But by then it was too late. Upon reaching the spot, the rescue team found about 10 bodies. No one survived there. Due to poverty and the hope of a better life after fleeing the war, many refugees risked their lives to cross the Mediterranean in small boats to Libya and try to reach Europe via Greece. Many refugees drowned while crossing that perilous road. According to the SOS Mediterranee, more than 350 refugees have died crossing the Mediterranean this year. Trafficking in human beings is not a new phenomenon, from Europe to Africa, the Middle East, Malaysia and even India. However, the situation in Libya is very bad. The poorest people are not reluctant to risk their lives to turn the wheel of fortune and the temptation of a comfortable life in Europe. In 2019, several Bangladeshis died in a boat sinking in the Mediterranean. In the lure of more profit, human traffickers load passengers in thin rubber boats. As a result, they are often the cause of accidents at sea. Meanwhile, European countries are determined to prevent the influx of refugees. As a result, Manusgayali has to suffer in the middle of the sea.
