The bodies of 21 women and one man were found on a rubber dinghy adrift near the Libyan coast.

A ship patrolling the central Mediterranean came to the rescue of two dinghies and managed to pull 209 people, including 50 children, to safety.

However, 22 migrants were found dead at the bottom of the first dinghy, lying in a pool of fuel.
