    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, APRIL 21 - The European Union is mulling a "military operation" targeting human traffickers in the Mediterranean in the wake of last weekend's migrant-boat disaster in which hundreds died, European Commission Spokesperson Natasha Bertaud said Tuesday. The European Commission presented a 10-point plan Monday including destroying smugglers' boats on the Libyan coast. This is also part of a five-point Italian plan unveiled Tuesday which includes the possible use of drones. The proposals will be examined by a special EU summit Thursday. (ANSAmed).
