Migrant rescue


ROME: Humanitari­an ships rescued almost 1 200 migrants crossing the Mediterran­ean Sea at the weekend on an array of small, tightly packed boats, Doctors Without Borders said yesterday.

A young woman was found unconsciou­s on one of the vessels and later died.

About 412 people were on a single wooden boat. Others were picked up from huge inflatable dinghies, which had set sail from Libya.
