Dozens of migrants were feared dead today after their overloaded fishing boat capsized off Egypt's Mediterranean coast, as authorities arrested four suspected traffickers following the tragedy that killed at least 42 people.

The latest in a string of disasters to hit those undertaking the perilous sea crossing to Europe saw hundreds of mainly African migrants thrown into the sea about 12 kilometres from the Egyptian city of Rosetta.

More than 150 people have been rescued but 42 migrants were confirmed to have died so far.
