No fewer than 44 migrants from Nigeria and Ghana have died in the Sahara Desert after their truck broke down in arid northern Niger.

 The Red Cross said the migrants, most of whom have not been identified, died this week and according to Reuters, six survivors walked to a remote village where they said that 44 people, mostly from Ghana and Nigeria and including three babies and two other children, died of thirst, said Lawal Taher, the department head for the Red Cross in the Bilma region.
Taher said a search for the bodies was underway. The number of migrants who cross the Sahara has increased in recent years as impoverished West Africans risk their lives to try to reach Europe

  1. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across
    a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking
    intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100%
    certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Kudos

  4. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick
    shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading through your blog posts.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go
    over the same subjects? Thank you so much!

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is
    required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any
    suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  7. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your site.
    It appears as though some of the text in your
    content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Kudos

  8. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

  9. Howdy! This article couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!

  10. Descargar facebook
    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am
    anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  12. Hey there I am so delighted I found your blog, I really found you by error, while I was researching on Aol for something else, Anyways I am here now
    and would just like to say cheers for a marvelous post and a all round enjoyable blog
    (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all
    at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I
    will be back to read more, Please do keep up the fantastic work.

  13. I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be just what
    I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write
    content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write related to here.

    Again, awesome blog!

  14. This is the right web site for everyone who really wants to understand
    this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally
    would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been discussed for a long time.
    Great stuff, just great!

  15. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover someone who really
    knows what they are talking about over the internet. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. More people need to check this out and
    understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular given that you surely have the gift.

  16. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Bless you!

  17. I like the helpful information you supply in your
    articles. I will bookmark your blog and check once
    more right here regularly. I am somewhat certain I’ll
    learn a lot of new stuff proper here! Best of luck for the next!

  18. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  19. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
