The Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM), a UNHCR run agency in Niger, evacuated 131 refugees from Libya to Niger. The evacuees were from Eritrea, Somalia and Sudan, and included 65 children under the age of eighteen. The UNHCR says that more than 3,800 refugees are being held in various detention centers across Libya. They have been able to secure the release and resettlement of more than 1200 people so far.

Pray for these refugees who are very vulnerable to trafficking, violence and abuse as they get caught up in the war in Libya.
Pray that they will be safe in Niger (The Bible, Proverbs 18:10).
