Boat carrying Africans to Europe capsizes, kills over 20

Egyptian official says boat carrying 600 Africans migrants bound for Europe has capsized, killing at least 29.

Around 150 people have been rescued and authorities have retrieved at least 29 bodies so far, the country’s state media reported.

Officials haven’t said where the boat was headed to, but migrants are leaving African countries in large numbers for Europe, often in rickety boats on perilous voyages that regularly turn fatal.
