The United Nations’ refugee agency UNHCR has said that around 1,300 migrants drowned or went missing in the central Mediterranean in 2021, making it the world’s deadliest migration route. Authorities dispatched a fixed-wing aircraft and two helicopters to rescue seven crew members reported to be injured. He said through the FIB meeting, the implementation of the point-deduction sentence was made following Perak FC's failure to pay the salary arrears of players and officials by the (April 14) deadline yesterday. The UN migration agency said Monday that four people were killed and 14 others missing after another boat sank off Libya’s coast, while two people were rescued. “At least 475 people have died attempting to cross the central Mediterranean so far this year,” it said. Three Indonesian men in their thirties were seriously injured, including one with second-degree burns covering 30 per cent of his body and others with burns on their faces. Earlier in April, nearly 100 people died in international waters after setting off from Libya in an overcrowded boat. "Until now, FIB has not received any convincing documentation from Perak FC on their ability to resolve the 2021 and 2022 salary arrears as well as the club's financial position in facing the rest of the 2022 league season," he said. Four people survived the incident, which was described as a “tragedy” by the UN refugee chief. Authorities were unable to confirm if there were oil spills because of poor visibility after nightfall, the spokesperson told AFP.
