A boat carrying at least 250 African migrants to Europe capsized before leaving the coast of Libya near the capital, Tripoli, drowning dozens, a spokesman for Libya's coast guard said Monday.

Qassim Ayoub told the Associated Press that Libyan coast guards are retrieving dozens of bodies still floating 18 kilometers off the coast in the Tajoura district. He added that 36 African migrants, including three women—one of them pregnant—were rescued Monday.
