As many as 130 migrants feared drowned in shipwrecks off Djibouti

It is feared that around 130 migrants have drowned in shipwrecks off Djibouti, according to the United Nations migration agency.

The sea was rough when two overloaded boats capsized, the UN said.

Police have so far found two survivors and five bodies, said the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).

It added there was no immediate information on the nationalities of the deceased.
