Forty-one migrants have been killed in a shipwreck off the Italian island of Lampedusa, survivors told Local Media.

A group of four people who survived the disaster told rescuers that they were on a boat that had set off from Sfax in Tunisia and sank on its way to Italy.

More than 1,800 people have lost their lives so far this year in the crossing from North Africa to Europe.
