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.
