A repatriation truck coming from Lybia. All the trucks coming from Lybia stop in Dirkou. As soon as the Dirkou authorities are informed that a truck is about to leave Agadez for Dirkou, they send a repatriation convoy which will meet the other on its way in a tragic-comical exchange of positions. This is to avoid overcrowding in the Dirkou oasis. In April 2009, with about 8000 migrants, the oasis was approaching its full capacity level.
