Bangladeshi youths are often killed while trying to enter Europe illegally. Not only by sea but also by the road they are facing death. Afzal Hossain, an expatriate Bangladeshi working for the Bangladeshi community in Europe, said, “Most Bangladeshis enter Europe by sea from Libya illegally. In the last few years, the news of the death of Bangladeshis is being published repeatedly. Even then, illegal entry into Europe did not stop. We need to create awareness about this. “
