The UN has said "much more is required" to prevent the deaths of migrants fleeing to Europe after hundreds were reported dead in recent days.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for a "collective political response" to avert "a crisis of solidarity".

He called on states involved to "expand safe and legal channels of migration".

On Thursday 71 people, thought to be Syrians, were found dead in a lorry in Austria and some 200 others are feared dead after two boats sank off Libya.
