Medecins San Frontieres and the UN Refugee agency said yesterday, that at least 700 migrants may have died at sea this past week.

It also added that this was the busiest week of migrant crossings from Libya towards Italy this year.

About 14,000 have been rescued since Monday amid calm seas, and there have been at least three confirmed instances of boats sinking.

But the number of dead can only be estimated based on survivor testimony, which is still being collected.
