Over 80 missing after migrant boat sinks off Libya: Survivors tell UNHCR

NNA – At least 80 migrants including women and children were missing after a boat sank off the Libyan coast, survivors told the UN’s refugee agency Monday, in the latest such tragedy.

A total of 132 people had boarded an inflatable craft Friday but it had started going down after a few hours. Only about 50 survivors were picked up by a commercial ship, which dropped them in Sicily on Sunday. —AFP
