At least 19 illegal migrants were killed on Wednesday and up to 79 injured in a road accident in the Libyan city of Bani Walid, a military source said.

Among the dead were Somalis and Eritreans who had been travelling in a truck packed with migrants, the source said. No more details were immediately available.

Bani Walid, located south of Tripoli, is a hub for smugglers to bring migrants from Libya's southern sub-Saharan neighbours to the coast from where they are shipped by boat to Italy.
