One million expected to flee from Libya to Europe
Up to one million migrants could set off for Europe from Libya this year, the executive director of the EU's Frontex border agency told ANSA on Friday. Most of the migrants will seek to enter Europe through Italy. "We have to be ready to address a more difficult situation than last year," said Fabrice Leggeri. "Our sources tell us that there are anywhere between 500,000 to a million people ready to leave Libya."
