250 AFRICAN MIGRANTS MISSING OFF TUNISIA COAST


Refugees have fled Libya amid more than three months of fighting between Gaddafi loyalists and opponents
TUNIS, Tunisia - At least two people have died, with many more feared dead among about 250 people who went missing after a fishing boat carrying migrants to Italy from Libya capsized off the coast of Tunisia, officials said.
About 570 people were rescued, Agence Tunis Afrique Presse, the state-run news agency, said on Thursday. The passengers are migrants from Africa and Asia who planned to enter Italy illegally, according to the Tunisian agency.
  • Refugees have fled Libya amid more than three months of fighting between troops loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and opponents of his four-decade rule.
  • The conflict has prompted a Nato-led air assault against pro-government forces and has left thousands dead. The unrest in Libya erupted after revolts unseated the leaders of Egypt and Tunisia.
At least 16 people were confirmed dead among as many as 600 migrants heading to Italy who went missing when their ship sank soon after leaving the Libyan capital, Tripoli, last month, according to the United Nations.
