The Information Office of the Libyan Navy has refuted the news, which claimed that a boat carrying Libyan immigrants had capsized off the coast of Zuwara on Thursday and dozens of bodies were recovered.

A statement by the Libyan Navy said that the Coast Guard and the Navy did not record any reports on the 15th and 16th of February and that in fact there was a discovery of 10 decomposed bodies of migrants, whose boat sank on the 2nd of February.

Among the bodies found was one of a Libyan young man whose family had reported him missing days ago.
