Vulnerable and stranded Malians in Libya helped to return home

Libya/Mali - Upon request of the Malian Government, IOM carried out last week an operation to assist the voluntary return of 163 Malian stranded in Libya for several months.

Most of the stranded migrants in this group had initially left Mali for Algeria. With the money earned working in the Northern African country they jointly bought a boat to make their way towards Lampedusa in late July, an island known as a prime transit point for migrants wanting to enter Europe, particularly those originating from Africa.
