Coast guards rescue 2,000 migrants in Mediterranean
ZAWIYA (Libya), Apr 15: More than 2,000 migrants trying to reach Europe were plucked from the Mediterranean on Friday in a series of dramatic rescues and one person was found dead, officials and witnesses said.

An Italian coast guards spokesman said 19 rescue operations by the coast guards or ships operated by non-governmental organisations had saved a total of 2,074 migrants on 16 rubber dinghies and three small wooden boats in the sea.

Another report from Barcelona adds: Spain’s maritime rescue said on Saturday it has rescued 125 migrants trying to make nighttime crossings from Africa in three smuggling boats.

All three of the small boats were located before daybreak on Saturday.
