Båten med over 120 mennesker om bord forliste utenfor den tunisiske byen Zarzis fredag kveld. 84 av dem ble reddet opp fra sjøen.

Blant dem var det en treåring, mens den eldste var 40 år, ifølge tunisiske myndigheter.

Personene kom fra en rekke land, deriblant Egypt, Eritrea, Tsjad, Sudan og Bangladesh, ifølge landets forsvarsdepartement.

De overlevende har fortalt at båten forlot Zuwara nordvest i Libya natten mellom mandag og tirsdag.
