MOSCOW, August 24 (RIA Novosti) – More than 250 migrants may have died after a boat sank off Libya, Reuters reported Sunday citing Mohammad Abdellatif, a local coastguard official.

"We believe there are still more than 250 bodies trapped underwater," the official said.

The wooden boat sank just one kilometer (0.6 mile) off the Libyan coast on Friday.

Libya is a popular place for illegal migrants to begin their journey to Europe and is still facing conflict in the wake of Muammar Gaddafi’s overthrow and death.
