Libyan immigrant workers stranded in Italy

Thousands of immigrant workers who have fled Libya housed in holding centre in Sicily.

    More than 15,000 immigrant workers have fled Libya following the violence there, with thousands having been sent to a holding centre in Sicily which is usually off limits to journalists.

    An isolated housing development in the Mineon countryside is where many of the refugees called home, but an uncertain future and political wrangling are all adding to their already desperate state of affairs.
