The Algerian government says it has dismantled a network involved in smuggling migrants from Syria to Europe.

Report says fifteen suspects have reportedly been arrested nine of them Syrians and six Algerians.

This comes after a five-month investigation uncovered how the people smugglers transported undocumented migrants from Syria and Lebanon to an airport in eastern Libya.

From there, they were taken along desert tracks to the Algerian port of Oran for clandestine sea crossings to Europe.
