Italy says it is "at war" with migrant traffickers, and has urged the EU to take robust action to stop more people dying in the Mediterranean.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi made the comment ahead of an EU summit today to discuss the crisis.

Italy's Defence Minister Roberta Pinotti said that the EU should consider military intervention.

More than 800 people drowned off Libya's coast on Sunday, bringing the number of deaths this year to 1,750.

The International Organisation for Migration says there have been 30 times as many deaths so far in 2015 as in the same period last year and the figure could rise to 30,000.
