Their identification in Libya was facilitated by Senegal’s consular representation in Libya based in Tunisia. This operation, which is voluntary and humanitarian, is part of the European Union-IOM Trust Fund initiative. In addition, the Senegalese Red Cross lent them a hand in transporting them to their respective localities. In addition, state authorities were present on their arrival to welcome them home.
