Bodies of some 27 refugees wash ashore in Libya

The bodies of at least 27 Europe-bound refugees have washed ashore in western Libya the latest tragedy on the world’s deadliest migration route.

The bodies, including those of a baby and two women, were found late on Saturday in two separate locations in the coastal town of Khoms, some 90km (55 miles) from Tripoli.

The refugees likely drowned in recent shipwrecks off Libya, a key departure point for African and Asian migrants making desperate attempts to reach Europe.
