The lives of three Syrian asylum seekers in Egypt facing forcible deportation are in grave danger, according to a Friday statement by human rights watchdog Amnesty International.

The three men, among more than 140 Syrian refugees held in the Rosetta police station after they were forced to abandon their ship on the Mediterranean coast on 14 April, were told they would be returned to Syria if they were not able to afford plane tickets to Lebanon, Turkey or Malaysia—the countries where they had first sought asylum.

(Los Angeles Times) – Seeking to take advantage of calmer seasonal waters, more migrants from Africa are trying to cross to Europe from Libya in recent weeks — and more than 100 are believed to have drowned when three boats sank in the Mediterranean. Libyan officials said Sunday that at least 36 migrants died and 42 remained missing after the boat in which they were traveling capsized May 6 off the Libyan coast, 30 miles east of Tripoli. An official said that the hull of the boat gave way shortly after it left the beach because of the crush of people on board. Passengers were said to have come from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Gambia, Mali and Senegal. A United Nations official said Sunday that the Libyan coast guard reported another wreck off the Libyan coast on April 30, in which a Somali survivor reported that 40 fellow passengers had drowned.

„[…] Già ieri l’isola di Lampedusa si è popolata di 1278 migranti. Arrivati con sette sbarchi diversi cominciati all’alba. Tutti a bordo di barconi che sono riusciti a eludere i controlli dell’operazione Mare Nostrum. Il primo con 352 persone a bordo è arrivato direttamente al porto, gli altri sono stati raggiunti dalla motovedette della guardia costiera e accompagnati in banchina. I migranti, quasi tutti siriani ed eritrei, hanno atteso diverse ore in banchina prima di essere trasferiti al centro di accoglienza, ufficialmente chiuso per lavori di ristrutturazione in vista della riapertura di settembre. In queste ore, con ponti aerei, dovrebbero essere trasferiti altrove.[…]“
