250 refugees feared dead in the Mediterranean Sea
Nearly 250 refugees are still missing after two boats sank in the Mediterranean Sea over the weekend.
Survivors have been taken to Italy, which expects to take in 200,000 refugees over the course of this year.
The total number of people who are feared dead or missing while trying to cross from North Africa to Italy since the beginning of the year has now reached more than 1,300 people, according to UNHCR.
