Photos: Young African migrant shot dead by smugglers in Libya over baseball hat

Migrant Offshore Aid Station, MOAS, an NGO for rescue operations in the Mediterranean on Friday recovered the body of a young man , who witnesses say was shot dead by traffickers in Libya because he refused to give them his baseball hat.
  Regina Catrambone, who founded MOAS with her husband Christopher, told Radio 1. Catrambone said the Phoenix ship was also taking 394 people rescued from three boats to the Sicilian port of Catania.
"This is the way migrants are treated in Libya, and yet people tell us that we should take them back there," the organizations said. 
"Putting aside the fact that it is illegal to force asylum seekers to return to a country where they are vulnerable to persecution, this is not what humanity is about. We will not stand by while people continue to be treated in this way and are forced to risk their lives at sea as a result"
