Another shipwreck off Libya leaves around 200 dead. The most tragic and gut wrenching part of this latest event is this:

The boat is believed to have capsized after migrants rushed to one side of the ship as mobile units from the Irish rescue carrier approached it.

What panic and despair there must have been on that boat to create such a mad rush that it would capsize the entire boat.

If you want to help you can donate to MOAS or to the Jesuit Refugee Service.
