Rescue workers have recovered 11 bodies of refugees who drowned  after they washed ashore in Libya this week.

Red Crescent in Lybia said that Teams from the Tripoli branch [the Libyan Red Crescent] recovered the bodies.

The rescue teams  were sent earlier this week on Tuesday to several beaches around the capital, in residential areas where people are accustomed to alerting authorities to the sighting of drowned bodies.

The bodies were retrieved on Hay Al Andalus beach and in another area about 15 kilometers west of the city.

Italy’s coastguard said on Wednesday that  another 900 refugees have been rescued from stricken boats off Libya, three days before the end of what is already a record year for arrivals at the country’s southern ports.

Over 5,000 refugees have been killed in Mediterranean this year.
