Rescue workers in Niger found the bodies of 92 people who died after their vehicles broke down in the Sahara as they were crossing the desert, officials said Thursday.

The group of migrants, comprising mostly of women and children, died of thirst in late September or early October when their pair of vehicles broke down. A group of up to 10 people made it to safety by foot, where they raised the alarm, BBC reports.

The migrants were headed north for the Algerian border, where they might have found low-paying work or passage to Europe. About 80,000 migrants cross the Sahara through Niger every year, according to John Ging, director of the United Nations office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Doesn't matter. Their bus broke down in the middle of the desert, MILES from the main road . No mobile signal , too poor for satellite or radar beacon. No tools, no knowledge , no escape . That is the life of refugees ... escaping to Alegeria...only to be stranded in the middle of the desert. Slowly dying to dehydration. Upon death , to be teared apart...limb by limb ... by the scavengers of the wild.

I always pray for such people who suffer or perish under extra-ordinary situations. My prayer, however, will not help reduce the problem. Only their respective countries can help by creating jobs to discourage such migrations. But migrations, legal or illegal, can not be stopped completely.

Can you still call them rescue workers? Seems like recovery workers is more accurate.
