ROME: A migrant boat capsized in the Mediterranean on Thursday, an Italian coastguard spokesman said, and some 80 people are feared to have drowned while 24 have been rescued by coastguard vessels.

It is the second deadly incident in two days, after five were confirmed to have died when a large fishing boat flipped over on Wednesday.
