Migrant NGO accuses Libyan coastguard of manslaughter

The Spanish NGO says the Libyan coastguard left three migrants, including a woman and a child, to drown in the Mediterranean sea.

    A group that rescues migrants from the Mediterranean plans to file a manslaughter complaint against Libya's coastguard.

    The Spanish aid group Proactiva Open Arms found the migrants and say the deaths were no accident.

    They say a woman and a child died after they and another woman were left stranded and their boat deliberately damaged.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
