BENGHAZI, Libya — The bodies of at least 95 migrants have been found washed ashore in Libya over the past five days, a spokesman for Libya’s Red Crescent said Sunday.

Mohamed al-Masrati said Red Crescent scouts found 85 of the corpses near Libya’s capital, Tripoli, and 10 near Sabartha, a city that is a main launching point for smugglers’ boats headed to Europe. He said most of the deceased are migrants from other African countries and search efforts continue.
