Migrants' return to Libya by Italian boat could breach international law -UN

Migrants' return to Libya by Italian boat could breach international law -UNA rescue operation in which an Italian towboat rescued more than 100 migrants and returned them to Libya earlier this week may have been in breach of international law, the United Nations said on Tuesday. According to Spanish charity Proactiva Open Arms, an Italian towboat rescued 108 migrants from international waters on Monday and took them to Libya, their country of departure. This would constitute a breach of international law, under which migrants rescued in international waters cannot be returned to a place where their lives are put in danger.
