Warning: The video may contain distressing footage

The bodies of at least 74 refugees were found on the shore off the Libyan city of Zawiya on Tuesday, according to the Libyan Red Crescent.

A damaged rubber boat, designed for 120 people was found near the site where the bodies were discovered.

The Libyan Red Crescent stated the number of victims could rise, but the other passengers of the boat have not been found yet.

The bodies of the deceased are expected to be buried at a cemetery for unidentified people in Tripoli. The humanitarian workers have posted a photo of those who drowned to establish their identities.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
