More than 2,000 migrants and refugees have been rescued from boats off the coast of Libya in one of the biggest single-day operations mounted.

 

Distress calls came from more than 20 vessels.

 

More than 2,000 people have died this year in attempts to reach Europe in overcrowded, unseaworthy boats.
