Mission Lifeline calls International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate death of migrants following 11 days drifting off the coast of Libya
Reading Time: 1 minute

A rights group called Wednesday for an international criminal investigation after 15 migrants died following 11 days drifting off the coast of Libya without help.

Their protest came as rights groups expressed growing concern about the plight of migrants attempting the dangerous Mediterranean crossing — and accused officials in several countries of blocking their efforts to help them.

In a tweet Claus-Peter Reisch, founder of the German group Mission Lifeline, accused the EU agencies Frontex and Eunavfor Med, which police the bloc’s border and coastguard activities, of “crimes against humanity” and called on “the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate”.
