At least 45 people including five children died earlier this week in the worst shipwreck reported so far this year off Libya’s coast. Al Jazeera reports that in a joint statement released on Wednesday, the International Organization for Migration and the UN’s refugee agency also said there had been 37 survivors, mostly from Senegal, Mali, Chad and Ghana, and called for an urgent review of countries’ approach in their rescue efforts, stressing that “there remains an absence of any dedicated, EU-led search and rescue programme”.
