International Affairs: Migrant Report

Robert Young Pelton advises us there's a new Libyan ground network functioning as a news service on global migration and other international affairs — Migrant Report.

It is described as “…an online project designed to track, centralize and examine the impact of human movement,” with a primary focus on the Mediterranean.

Migrant Report is online here, on Facebook here and has a YouTube channel right here.
