More than 100 migrants may have drowned off Libya's western coast after their boat capsized. The coastguard said it had brought back to shore more than 300 migrants from other boats. Libya’s western coast is one of the main departure points for thousands of migrants. They try to reach Europe by sea, fleeing wars and poverty. Increasing numbers are intercepted by Libya's EU-backed coastguard, and returned to Libya.
