Libya’s coastguard has intercepted nearly three hundred migrants from sub-Saharan African countries on two rubber boats east of Tripoli.

Officials said the migrants were intercepted near the town of Zliten by one of several coastguard vessels that were repaired and delivered to Libya by the Italian government.
The efforts by Libya’s coastguard is due to pressure from Italy and other European countries to check the use of the country as smuggling hub for people fleeing conflict and hardship in sub-Saharan Africa.
