BBC News: My Germany: Lampedusa refugee

It appears they were part of a human wave, generated by the late Muammar Gaddafi to crash upon the shores of Europe in revenge for Nato’s intervention on the rebel side during the war. In all, 28,000 people reached Italy from Libya, only a few of them actual Libyans, the UN refugee agency says

The refugees are sub-Saharan Africans. Gaddafi knew the refugees, and their offspring, would be problematic forever. The refugees landed in Italy, and have moved to Germany looking for work. They are living in tents in a park, and risk being attacked by other migrants who arrived before them.
