Future uncertain for Libyan refugees in Italy

Often lacking a clear legal status, Libyan migrants are unable to work and must wait for decision.

    Italian authorities are struggling to deal with an influx of refugees from Libya who are fleeing fighting in the country.

    More than 15,000 refugees, the vast majority of them are migrant workers, have arrived in Italy since February,

    Under a political asylum status, they can legally stay in Italy, without it, they will be deported.

    Their legal status is often unclear, leaving their future hanging in the balance.
