There are very few details about the video. But it’s been watched by millions of people on the social media.
The video displays the bodies of some Africans who died in the Mediterranean sea trying to cross over to Europe for a better life.
There are so many corpses that aid workers seem to be overwhelmed.
Details about the time, the date, the exact place and circumstances surrounding their death were not clearly known by this newspaper, but such images have become too familiar
Hundreds of years of slave trade, followed by brutal colonialism and neo-colonialism, and replaced by dictatorial and corrupt regimes have continued to push Africans to seek a better life elsewhere.
But like in this case, many end up dead at sea or the desert before they could see Europe or the United States.
The video is a reminder that the international community has been silent for too long regarding Africa.
Africa is in crisis and only a comprehensive Marshall Plan can save it now in addition to fighting dictatorship, corruption and terrorism.
