The same video was shared on youtube on 19 June 2019 with the caption “Mediterranean Sea Becomes A Cemetery For African Immigrants.” The video says:
Mediterranean Sea is fast becoming a cemetery for African immigrants. More Africans are perishing in the deep blue sea daily. The immigrants are risking their lives in the deadliest voyage to cross into Europe in search of greener pastures. The number of black Africans dead in the sea surpassed those who died during the infamous slave trade era of the 19 century. It’s heart breaking to see images of deadAfricans brought to the shoreline of the sea as captured above. Africa is the richest continent pregnant with rich mineral resources but our people are dying in the sea daily because of rat race to Europe to make a living of menial jobs!!! Africa must rise to stop the dangerous trans Mediterranean voyage to save the black race from this catastrophic consequences of early death!
