EU border Agency accuses NGOs of encouraging traffickers

The head of European Union border agency, Frontex, has criticised charities that rescue migrants off Libya, arguing that they encourage the traffickers who profit from the dangerous Mediterranean crossings.

Head of the agency, Fabrice Leggeri, says 40% of recent rescue operations at sea off the North African country were carried out by non-government organisations, and such rescue operations should be re-evaluated.

Leggeri is also accusing the groups of not effectively cooperating with security agencies against human traffickers.

According to him, this leads traffickers to force even more migrants onto un-seaworthy boats with insufficient water and fuel.
