Four Migrants Found Dead, 945 Rescued In Mediterranean

At least four migrants have been found dead, and a further 945 migrants have been rescued, in the Mediterranean.

Nearly 1,000 migrants were saved in six separate rescue operations in the Mediterranean on Tuesday, while four were found dead below the deck of their boat, Italy’s coast guard said.

The four dead had suffocated, according to the Malta-based humanitarian group Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), whose Topaz Responder rescue ship recovered the bodies and 400 survivors from the same boat.
