Dozens drown off Libyan coast
The Libyan Red Crescent aid organisation said it had recovered some 74 bodies on Monday that had washed ashore on the Libyan coast. The Red Crescent says the deceased had attempted to cross the Mediterranean Sea to reach Italy on a rubber boat. More are feared dead, with children said to be among those who had perished. Smugglers are known to overload the rubber boats with too many passengers.
