Libyan authorities have shot dead three Sudanese migrants who tried to escape after they were intercepted by the coastguard in the Mediterranean Sea and returned to the North African country, the United Nations said.

The three were among the 73 Europe-bound migrants, mostly from Sudan, who were returned late on Monday to the western coastal town of Khoms, said Safa Msehli, spokesperson for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), on Tuesday.

Khoms is about 120km (75 miles) east of Tripoli.

The IOM said local authorities started shooting when the migrants attempted to escape from the disembarkation point.

Two migrants died on site and a third died of his wounds while being transported to a hospital, Msehli told Al Jazeera.

Two other migrants were wounded and were taken to local hospitals while survivors were moved to detention centres, the IOM added.

"This is not the first time people are subjected to this senseless violence and confirms yet again that no one should be returned to Libya," Msehli said.
