Lori Hinnant Associated Press Published 1:00 p.m. UTC Jun 25, 2018 Assamaka, Niger – From this isolated frontier post deep in the sands of the Sahara, the expelled migrants can be seen coming over the horizon by the hundreds. They look like specks in the distance, trudging miserably across some of the world’s most unforgiving terrain in the blistering sun. They are the ones who made it out alive.

Others, disoriented and dehydrated, wander for days before a U.N. rescue squad can find them. Untold numbers perish along the way; … [Read more...] about Algeria abandons 13K migrants in the Sahara in waves
