Hundreds of migrants drowned when their boat capsized in the Mediterranean, although there is no official confirmation.

The 41 survivors say they were transferred to another vessel when it sank in the middle of the night.

They said that up to 500 people died, but coastguards in the region have been unable to confirm their accounts.

Numbers of migrants making the dangerous sea route from Libya to Italy have surged this year.
