The Sahara would have been the scene of a new tragic epilogue of a trip undertaken by tens of migrants. It is about “20 children and 14 adults, dead from thirst, after having been abandoned in the desert by traffickers in human beings” (ANSAmed).
The victims – “twenty children, five men and nine women”, whose “death dates back to around one week ago” – would have been “found in the Agadez Region, nearby Assamaka”. The latter is located on the border “between Niger and Algeria”.
Temperature can touch very hot “peaks” in that area, which has anyway become a “privileged crossing point to reach the boarding ports in Libya and Algeria, towards Italy” (ibidem).
