Over a hundred migrants missing after boat sinks off Libyan coast

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A wooden boat carrying up to 200 migrants has sunk just one kilometre (half a mile) off the Libyan coast, the coast guard said on Saturday, and most passengers were feared drowned. The local coast guard said it had no boats of its own and had to commandeer fishing vessels in a rescue attempt after fishermen raised the alarm on Saturday morning. Migrants have been streaming out of North Africa in rickety boats in rising numbers for years. #India #China #Business #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion
