Abord the Astral - At least 22 Europe-bound migrants died on Monday in an overloaded wooden boat off Libya, an AFP photographer said.
"It was a wooden vessel and there were about 1 000 people on three levels. I counted 22 bodies and there are still others in the hold," photographer Aris Messinis, who was able to go on board the vessel, said by telephone.
