Capsized boats: 200 migrants feared dead, 5 bodies recovered in Mediterranean

A Spanish aid organisation says more than 200 migrants are feared dead in a boat sinking off the coast of Libya.

Proactiva open arms said it had recovered five bodies floating near two capsized boats.

The group’s Laura Lanuza said the five they pulled from the Mediterranean were young men who appeared to have drowned.

A spokesman for Italy’s coast guard, which co-ordinates rescues, confirmed the five deaths.
