Experiences in Libya

After more than two years struggling to stem the flow of refugees and migrants drowning off the coast of Libya more forceful action by the Libyan navy and EU-funded boats has seen a drop in Mediterranean migrant rescues this year. But what is the human cost?

This week Della Kilroy will bring us a  three part investigative series on the experiences of those seeking asylum.

This series was funded by the Mary Raftery Journalism Fund and the Tony Ryan Trust.
