Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has led calls for more European Union action on sea migration after the latest deadly capsize of a boat in the Mediterranean.

Demanding a summit on the issue, Renzi said trafficking was "a plague in our continent" and bemoaned the lack of European solidarity.

The 20 meter long boat was believed to be carrying up to 700 migrants, and only 28 survivors have been rescued.

Up to 1,500 migrants are now feared to have drowned this year alone.
