Niger – Agadez. 6th April 2009. At last, after more than 20 days’ wait the Dirkou convoy is ready to move. 300 migrants arrive in Agadez every day and often the delays in the convoy departures cause overcrowding in the establishments which host the migrants. The convoy of 6th April counted about 47 trucks of which at least 25 were carrying migrants, with at least 130-150 passengers on board; once in Dirkou the same trucks will attempt to make for Lybia. This truck, just outside the city, is approaching the control post where soldiers and police check the documents.
