More than 1,200 African migrants who have been seeking refuge at an IOM transit centre in the southern Libyan city of Sebha are being evacuated to Chad, ending weeks of uncertainty and fear over their future.

The migrants, part of a large group of several thousand who had arrived at the centre as the battle for control of Sebha began, left on a convoy of 15 trucks on Sunday 2nd October, accompanied by the Chadian Deputy Consul and Chadian and Nigerian community elders.
