Picture source: CNN

At least 90 migrants are thought to have died after the boat they were traveling on capsized in the Mediterranean Sea this morning.

The tragedy occurred just off the coast of Lybia. Ten bodies washed ashore shortly after the boat sank, and at least three people managed to swim to safety or were rescued by passing ships.

Most of the people on board the boat were believed to be Pakistanis.

At least 218 people have already died in Mediterranean waters since the beginning of the year.
