Libya struggles to cope with refugee crisis

The Libyan town of Kufra has become a major staging post for people from sub-Saharan Africa, whom are trying to get to Europe.

Their journey is long and dangerous, across the Sahara desert, and they would be traded between tribes in exchange for a safe passage.

All of this means that Libya is struggling to cope with those who can make it into the country, but fail to get out of it.

Wyre Davies reports from Kufra.
