"Around 10 people were found dead," the Italian coastguard said Sunday, while several rescue teams worked in the waters off war-torn Libya, where most of the rickety, overcrowded boats set sail from. The Italian navy said its patrol ship Bettica picked up more than 400 migrants from two vessels on Sunday, among them some 60 women and around 15 children. Colonel Reda Issa told AFP that most of the migrants were Africans.
