Hundreds of thousands of migrants are waiting in Libya to cross the Mediterranean to Europe, according to Britain's National Crime Agency.
It warned that Italy’s refusal to take stranded ships had created a bottleneck of 700,000 waiting in the North African country.
There has been a spike in attempted illegal sea crossings to Europe this year. Some 300 people drowned last week alone.
700K WOW Staggering
migrants are waiting in Libya - ghaddafi wouldn't have allowed that. libya can thank obama for this.
People have to understand what a disaster was created by NATO aka USA agents destroyed Ghaddafi to get his gold and drive the price of oil up.
700,000 is just the beginning. Europe is gone and USA next. Why not relocate in the middle east. Israel is always looking for more people to immigrant. They are a democracy so no religious test should exist
While your comment was great, I found your being fecetious even better.
Israel only wants f*king jews....so unless you can prove you are a jew...dont bother.... And even if you are a jew....they dont want blacks in their precious country...
The economy of Libya is going to crash unless these invaders pay for their invasion into the EU!!!! Gotta feed the smugglers you know...!!!!
