Dozens die’ as migrant boat sinks in Mediterranean.
Dozens of migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean after a boat sank south of Italy’s island of Sicily, the Save the Children aid group says.
It says survivors reported that many people fell into the sea as a rescue vessel was approaching.
The ship arrived carrying the survivors in the city of Catania on Tuesday.
At least 1,750 people have died this year trying to cross the Mediterranean, a 20-fold increase on the same period in 2014 when 96 people died.
