EU leaders are due to hold an emergency summit on ways to stem the number of migrants risking the perilous journey across the Mediterranean.

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

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has called for direct action against people smugglers.

He described them as "the slave traders of the 21st Century".

Italy says 90% of the migrant boats ending up on its shores set off from Libya.
