Unrest in Libya will send up to one million refugees to Europe, sources in the country reports, according to EU's Frontex boss.
Europe can look forward to an endless queue of refugees from Libya, after a Western coalition bombed the Gaddafi-regime from power almost four years ago.
The democracy that the ignorant politicians said would come, instead ended up in anarchy and civil unrest.
Head of the EU border agency, Frontex, now fears that up to one million Libyan refugees will be heading for Europe.
- Sources tell us that between 500,000 and one million refugees is ready to leave Libya, says the French Frontex chef, Fabrice Leggeri to the Italian news agency Ansa.
- We must be ready to face a much more difficult situation than last year.
Last year, almost three times as many refugees came to Europe compared with the previous year, mainly because of the situation in Syria.
In Libya, safety went into a negative spiral, after a large coalition on a mandate from the UN Security Council gave air support for a rebellion against the former leader Muammar Gaddafi, who died during the fighting in 2011.
The country is now divided between rival groups, and there are two parliaments, which have their own territory.
Egypt has in recent weeks brought its country men home from Libya in special chartered flights because of the unrest.
Militant groups in Libya have also joined the Islamic State and the Islamic fundamentalists who otherwise rampant in Iraq and Syria, which earlier this year published a video in which 21 people - Egyptian Copts - were executed.
Frontex fear that they do not have the resources to handle so many refugees as the organization's sources in Africa estimates that there will come.
Therefore the boss is demanding more funding from member states.
Many refugees are fleeing across the Mediterranean in vessels not suited for the waves which can occur in severe weather.
Hundreds of refugees have lost their lives at sea this year alone.
In 2014, more than 221,000 people illegally entered the EU by crossing the Mediterranean. More than three times as many as in 2013.
