At least 74 migrants died in a shipwreck off the coast of Libya on Thursday, the United Nations’ migration agency said, with 47 survivors brought to shore by coastguards and fishermen. Libya, which has had no stable central government since a NATO-backed uprising in 2011, is a major transit point for mainly African migrants seeking to cross the Mediterranean and reach Europe.
