Migrants are eaten by sharks during rescue operation in the Mediterranean

At least 31 migrants died and 200 were rescued after they were set on by sharks during a perilous crossing from Africa to Italy, Libya’s navy has said.

    Finally some uplifting news for the day.

      Who trained the sharks I wonder?

      • Alain

        Don’t you know they were Zionist sharks.

        • DVult

          Trained to go for the wallets first.

      Why did the deprive those poor sharks of the other 200?

  • Dana Garcia

    Can we get some sharky photos for billboards in Libya?

    Poor sharks, someone tried to feed them tainted meat.

    • John Boy

      But will they survive it?

      • Dave

        Best to dump some pepto-bismal for the poor sharks.

      • JoKeR

        Why hasn’t PETA or Greenpeace come to the defense of those poor sharks?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Don’t know. Some sharks may have a taste for dark meat.

    Sharks are doing more to defend Europe than governments.

    Think about it.

  • This horror is on the heads of those – including “charities” and the U.N. – encouraging these people to crossing the Mediterranean. At least the survivors here were returned to Libya. (What Libya did with them afterwards I hardly want to guess.)

    If there were no successful people-smuggling operations over the Med this particular nightmare would stop. Nobody needs to get eaten by sharks for that to happen.

      Sharks with fricken’ laser beams?

      Every fish deserves a warm meal.

      Sound as the main thrust of your argument may be, some NGO-flavoured shark chum is in order.,

      Tripoli, Libya November 6, 2017.
      At least five African migrants died and more were missing off western Libya on Monday after a boat carrying about 140 people capsized and then some migrants refused rescue by the Libyan coast guard and tried instead to swim to a German rescue vessel.
      A video obtained by Reuters showed how, during the rescue operation, some migrants tried jumping off the Libyan patrol boat which had rescued them to reach a ship of Seawatch, a German non-governmental organisation, a few metres away.
      Some screamed to be allowed to leave the Libyan boat as the German vessel came closer. The Libyans tried to discourage the migrants from trying to reach the German boat, Seawatch said.
      The incident sparked mutual recrimination by Seawatch and the Libyan coast guard.
      At least five migrants had died, including a toddler, due to the “violent and reckless behaviour of (the) Libyan coast guards,” Seawatch said on its Twitter feed, adding that 58 had been rescued.
      Abu Ajala Amer Abdelbari, a coast guard commander, said the German NGO had undermined its rescue operations by approaching its boat.
      “The Seawatch was approaching while we were rescuing migrants,” he said. “This was encouraging the migrants to swim to the Seawatch and a (nearby) French navy ship.”

    I’ve always been fascinated by sharks, magnificent creatures of the deep. Hope they didn’t get sick from their strange meal.
