Mediterranean migrant crisis: Action urged after deaths

Greek coastguards have rescued around 80 migrants whose boat ran aground off the island of Rhodes.

Three people died including a child. It is the latest in a series of fatal shipping accidents involving migrants seeking a better life in Europe.

It is feared hundreds of people drowned at the weekend when their boats capsized off the islands of Sicily and Lampedusa.
