C'è Cris su questa barca. Lo conoscete, ha 16 anni ed è un anno che ve ne racconto la storia. È il mio fratellino e potrebbe morire.
Con lui ci sono altri 20 minori eritrei. Una barca di bambini in fuga dall'orrore.
Diffondete i nostri appelli, vi prego.
#Malta percepisce un mucchio di soldi per gestire una SAR enorme. Ma poi lascia affogare bambini con diritto di asilo in Europa.
Vi sembra normale?
Perché il Governo italiano le ha ceduto la sua zona SAR?
Tempo fa, Cris mi scrisse questo.
Cercavo di non farlo salire su una maledetta barca. Ci riuscii.
Ieri invece ci è salito, senza avvisarmi.
Adesso la possibilità che muoia mi distrugge.

1) #Turkey and the USA seem to be getting closer over #Libya. Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin has been on local channel NTV tonight, says 'We can't accept the support Russia gives to Haftar, we don’t believe this will support the political process in Libya..... Image
2) '...the US side on the other hand sees that Turkey's involvement in the Libya crisis brought a balance in the situation.' The US ambassador to Libya has also been on the phone to the leader of the UN-backed govt in Libya's capital, Tripoli.

A lot of the questions that came up during @LibyaDesk consultations in #Tunis had to do with the return of former #Gaddafi officials and supporters to the scene.
It came as no surprise that a lot of the available information was false.
This thread will attempt to clarify things.
Since 2011, tribes and figures that supported the former strongman were sidelined and persecuted, forcing many to flee #Libya.
The first return of ‘green’ Libyans (Gaddafi supporters) was in 2014 #Benghazi when #Haftar called on them to assist in the war against #terrorism.
This created a safe zone in east of #Libya which resulted in many families in exile that could no longer afford living in #Egypt or #Tunisia to move to towns in the east.
Politically, the first return of former #Gaddafi officials to political life was due to #Sarraj..

It seems an independent auditor came to Abu Salim today looking into UN activities. The guards told detainees in advance not to mention that they haven't been fed for months (some of their families are sending them money to buy food with instead, which guards take a cut from). ImageImageImageImage
Messages today from Qasr bin Ghashir dc, southern Tripoli, today, where they’re asking for evacuation & any organisation that can help them. ImageImage
Sorry for my confusion, the teenager above was being held in Qasr bin Ghashir, but has now been moved to the UNHCR facility in Tripoli for evacuation. He's asking for help for those he left behind. Image
