Many migrants' bodies recovered off Libya

Dozens of bodies recovered after boat presumably carrying 130 migrants sank.

    Dozens of bodies have been recovered off the coast of Libya's capital Tripoli. They are believed to be African migrants who drowned when their boat sank two days ago.

    Survivors say 130 were on board the vessel. Dozens more are still missing. 

    Libya has become a springboard for tens of thousands of migrants. It has threatened it would help migrants reach Europe if the EU does not do more to help the country deal with the migration.
