At least 55 irregular migrants of different nationalities were held on the Mediterranean coast of Libya. They were detained in a raid on a warehouse in the coastal town of Zlitan.
The Libyan Interior Ministry said on Sunday.
According to reports, immigrants tried to cross the Mediterranean to enter Europe. At that time, the local administration arrested a person involved in human trafficking.
Immigration aspirants use the perilous Mediterranean to enter Europe via Italy and Malta. Most of them are citizens of different countries in Africa.
