At least 100 feared dead after boat sinks off Libya coast

At least 100 feared dead after boat sinks
About 100 migrants and refugees are missing and feared dead after their boat capsized off the coast of Libya, according to the Libyan coastguard.

Libya, with its weak central government and proximity to Italian territory, is increasingly becoming the preferred option for many refugees despite the dangers involved in crossing the Mediterranean Sea.

The Libyan coastguard picked up 14 survivors from the boat just east of the capital, Tripoli, an official said on Friday.

The exact number of migrants aboard the boat at the time of the incident is not known yet.
