At least 126 migrants are feared dead after their boat sank off the coast of Libya while trying to make the perilous crossing to Europe.
According to spokesperson to International Organisation for Migration, Flavio Di Giacomo, the migrants left Libya on Thursday but their inflatable boat sank several hours into the journey.
The survivors said traffickers intercepted their boat shortly after setting off and stole their engine.
