Onboard a fishing boat 30 miles off the coast of Libya, a Bangladeshi man begs to be released from the overcrowded hold of the boat where he was packed with 150 men in slaveship-like conditions. The boat carried 414 migrants and refugees attempting to reach Italy. The migrant boat was intercepted by the NGO Migrant Offshore Aid Station’s rescue ship, and all the people onboard were evacuated. Image: Jason Florio.
