At least 17 bodies thought to be those of Europe-bound migrants have washed ashore in western Libya, the Libyan Red Crescent said.
They are believed to have drowned.
The bodies were found Tuesday near the western Libyan town of Zawiya, the Red Crescent’s branch in the town said. They were handed over to authorities for burial.
The Red Crescent posted images on Facebook that show its workers carrying white body bags with the Mediterranean Sea in the background.
The UN migration agency IOM says more than 1,100 migrants were reported dead or presumed dead in numerous boat mishaps and shipwrecks off Libya so far this year.
