Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - AP/SANTI PALA­CIOS

Mi­grants drift­ing in a crowded rub­ber boat wait to be picked up Tues­day in the Mediter­ranean Sea off the coast of Libya. The Span­ish aid group Proac­tiva Open Arms said 167 peo­ple were res­cued but 13, in­clud­ing chil­dren and preg­nant women, did not sur­vive. More than 2,200 mi­grants have died try­ing to reach Europe across the Mediter­ranean this year, ac­cord­ing to the In­ter­na­tional Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Mi­gra­tion.
