    ROME - ''The externalization of the control of European borders delegated to North-Africa, without stopping deaths at sea, is causing the violation of human rights, not only in Libya'', Oxfam said in a newly released report.

    ''The first to pay a very high price are the most vulnerable parts of the population of Tunisia and Morocco, together with thousands of people fleeing countries like Syria, Eritrea, Sudan, the Ivory Coast and Libya, who are trying to reach Europe'', the organization said in the report ''A real common interest'' published on Monday.

    The report focuses on the consequences of the migratory phenomenon in two countries, like Tunisia and Morocco, where arbitrary pushbacks and systematic discrimination against migrants occur on a daily basis, the organization said.
