Up to 40 African migrants are believed to have drowned after their inflatable boat sank near the Libyan coast, survivors have told the United Nations refugee agency after reaching Italy.

“They said between 35 and 40 people died on Wednesday morning,” Carlotta Sami, the UNHCR spokeswoman for southern Europe, said on Thursday.

All the dead came from sub-Saharan countries such as Senegal, Mali and Benin.
