UK: Expect 500,000 Migrants From Libya

Captain Nick Cooke-Priest, the British official heading the British warship conducting rescue operations, claims that there could be as many as “450,000 to 500,000 migrants in Libya” waiting to try and get into Europe this summer. His ship, the HMS Bulwark, was dispatched on Sunday to rescue at least 500 more migrants in distress at sea. According to the International Organization for Migration, more than 80,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean this year.
