Armed assailants have killed at least four and injured 15 in an attack on a boat carrying migrants off the coast of Libya, according to a German NGO.
Sea-Watch claims the attackers arrived via a boat allegedly carrying Libyan coastguard insignia last night. Armed with clubs, they allegedly proceeded to beat the migrants, knocking many of them overboard.
The organisation launched a rescue operation following the incident.
