More than 200 migrants 'missing' off Tunisia


Up to 250 people are reported missing in the Mediterranean after the boat carrying them illegally to Europe got into difficulty off the Tunisian coast.

Around 570 of those on board were rescued. But others ended up in the water amid a stampede to get off, as the vessel was being battered by rough seas.

The boat is said to have been carrying refugees fleeing the violence in neighbouring Libya.
