    Search and rescue organisations in the Mediterranean Sea are accusing the Libyan coastguard of reckless behaviour that's endangering lives.

    A series of incidents caught on camera appear to show Libyan ships trying to prevent refugees being pulled from the water.

    Refugees also say they've been robbed and shot at by Libyan forces.
