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.
