NIGER-IMMIGRATION-DISASTER

BEST QUALITY FROM SOURCE A picture taken with a mobile phone and received on November 2, 2013 shows soldiers digging graves on October 30, 2013 for the bodies of some of 92 migrants who died of thirst in the harsh Niger desert, about a dozen kilometers from the Algerian border. Niger on November 1, 2013 ordered the 'immediate' closure of migrant camps in the north of the country after 92 people, mostly women and children, died of thirst trying to cross the harsh Sahara desert. The decomposed bodies of 52 children, 33 women and seven men were found on October 30 following their grisly death in October after two trucks carrying them broke down on the way to Algeria. Only 21 people survived out of 113 trying to cross Niger's desert border into Algeria in two trucks, which both broke down, according to a highly placed security source.
