Tripoli, Rajab 15, 1439, Apr 1, 2018, SPA -- The Libyan coastguard said Sunday it rescued 120
refugees and migrants who came into difficulty while attempting to
cross the Mediterranean Sea.
The people were picked up by the coastguard late Saturday in waters close to the city of Zuwara on Libya's western coast.
A European non-governmental organization was also involved in the operation, the coastguard said, without identifying that organization.
Those rescued were given a medical check-up before being brought to a camp, it added.
