MEMO/11/550

Brussels, 5 August 2011

In the recent days and weeks, we have been witnessing an increasing number of people fleeing Libya and trying to reach European shores, and in particular the island of Lampedusa. Many men, women and children are putting their lives at risk trying to cross the Mediterranean in boats that are often unseaworthy and in unpredictable weather conditions. An unknown number of these people are drowning in such attempts. The reported death of over one hundred people yesterday is yet another terrible example of human despair.
