A security patrol raided on Saturday a place in Garabulli used for gathering illegal immigrants and referred all of the migrants and human traffickers found at the site to the competent authorities to take legal measures against them, said the Ministry of Interior.

The Ministry explained that the Special Tasks Department of the General Department of Security Operations received information about the presence of illegal migrants from different African countries who were preparing to set off to Italy.

The operation was the result of strenuous efforts and investigations that spanned two months, conducted in cooperation with three other brigades, and resulted in foiling another dangerous journey involving about one hundred immigrants, among them women and children," the ministry added.
