Nearly 500 migrants have been rescued by Libya's coastguard and taken to Tripoli Naval Base.
Three different groups were picked up drifting off the Libyan coast. They included women and children.
They are the latest in a Summer wave of migrants from mainly sub-Saharan countries, Morocco and Tunisia to risk their lives attempting to cross the Mediterranean in a bid to get to southern Europe.
