The number of bodies recovered by Tunisia after a ship packed with migrants sank off its coast last week has risen to 82.

More bodies were found from a ship packed with migrants that sank off the Tunisian coast last week.

The boat capsized after setting off for Europe from neighboring Libya. Four survivors have been rescued, who told Tunisian coast guards that the ship was carrying around 85 people.

Libya’s west coast is a main departure point for African migrants hoping to reach Europe, though numbers have dropped due to an Italian-led effort to disrupt smuggling networks and support the Libyan Coast Guard.
