More than 700 people are believed to have drowned in the Mediterranean last week, the deadliest seven days for Europe-bound asylum seekers in more than a year.
The casualties happened in three separate incidents on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after more than 13,000 people set sail from Libya for Italy in an eight-day period.
The full details of the disasters emerged slowly because of the chaotic nature of the situation. The UN refugee agency said it was now certain that this was the highest weekly death toll since April 2015, when more than 1,300 died in two separate incidents off Libya.
