Libya has warned that it does not have the resources to control the flow of people heading to Europe and has accused the EU of failing to deliver on promises of help.
Libya has become a major hub for migrants as people traffickers exploit lawlessness in the country. Earlier this month, a British parliamentary report said the EU's naval mission to combat people trafficking off the Libyan coast was "failing" and had only succeeded in forcing smugglers to change tactics. The onset of better weather conditions has raised fears more people will attempt the dangerous 300 km (185 miles) crossing to the island of Lampedusa in Italy. In March, French Defence Minister Yves Le Drian said there were about 800,000 migrants waiting to head to Europe from Libya.
More than 30,000 migrants have already crossed from Libya to Italy this year. Libyan coastguards say they intercepted boats carrying 850 migrants trying to reach Europe on Sunday alone. It is Euro governments policies over years that has caused this situation. So don't stay silent, please,
