The rescues followed a shipwreck that left at least 97 migrants missing in Lybia’s sea. Lybian Coastguard spokesman Ayoub Qassem said 23 migrants were rescued from the ship which was believed to carry 120 people.
Since the beginning of this year, at least 590 migrants have been found dead or missing off the coast of Lybia.
