700 Migrants Feared Drowned Trying to Cross Mediterranean

More than 700 migrants are feared to have drowned this week in three separate ship wrecks in the Mediterranean Sea as they tried to reach Europe in smuggling boats, according to the U.N. refugee agency.

About 100 of those migrants came from a smuggler’s boat that sank Wednesday, while another 550 are missing from a boat that capsized Thursday morning on its way from Libya.

Italian police arrested the captain of the second boat, identified as a 28-year-old Sudanese man, after survivors pointed him out.
