Over 90 people die in new 'Mediterranean tragedy': UN official

Baku, April 4, AZERTAC

The head of the UN refugee agency on Sunday called on European countries to apply their generosity towards Ukrainian refugees to others as well as 90 more people died in a fresh "tragedy" in the Mediterranean Sea, according to Anadolu Agency.

"More than 90 people have died in another Mediterranean tragedy," Filippo Grandi said on Twitter.

"Europe has proven its ability to host 4 million refugees from Ukraine generously and effectively," Grandi said. "It must now urgently consider how to apply this to other refugees and migrants knocking, in distress, at its doors."

Grandi retweeted earlier remarks from the French medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres, which said on Twitter that over 90 people died in international waters after leaving from Libya "on an overcrowded boat many days ago."
