Fifteen more migrants are missing after their boat sank in the Mediterranean on Friday, the UN said Sunday, adding to the more than 80 others lost in another shipwreck that day.
A boat carrying around 120 people had sunk early Friday, four hours after leaving Libya for Italy, UN refugee agency spokeswoman Carlotta Sami told AFP, adding that "some 15 persons went missing", most of them from Africa.
The news came after the International Organization for Migration said that 84 migrants went missing when their inflatable craft sank off Libya in a separate shipwreck Friday.
