Forty-five Sudanese who were trying to enter Libya died when they lost their way in the western desert, the Sudanese news agency SUNA reported Sunday.
The regional government of South Darfur State, which borders Libya, said the 45 nationals died after losing their way. It did not list the cause of death and did not say when their bodies were discovered.
There have been many similar cases in the past when Sudanese, mostly economic migrants, died as a result of thirst.
The news agency, "warned others against attempting such an enterprise which will lead to a similar fate." (Albawaba.com)
