France cancels offer of boats to Libya under pressure from NGOs

Rights groups hailed on Monday a French decision to drop plans to offer six boats to Libya’s coast guard. French officials confirmed they had cancelled the delivery after eight NGOs filed a lawsuit against the move, criticising Libya’s treatment of migrants. Lola Schulmann of Amnesty France—one of the NGOs involved in the case—told AFP she hoped the decision would mark “a turning point in relations between France and Libya in terms of migration policy”.
