The Illegal Immigration Agency in Tripoli has received 28 illegal immigrants at Sikka Road Shelter.

According to a statement on their official Facebook page, the Coast Guard in Zawiya rescued 20 Moroccan illegal immigrants and another 8 from Gambia and Senegal after their boat capsized off Zawiya during a failed attempt to reach European waters.

The Illegal Immigration Agency indicated that they would continue to work with Moroccan authorities to return the illegal immigrants voluntarily by air through Mitiga International Airport to their country.
