Some 34 migrants have died in a shipwreck in the western Mediterranean, which 26 people survived, the UN Migration Agency said on Tuesday, citing the Moroccan navy and a Spanish aid agency.

Joel Millman, spokesman of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), told Reuters: “The boat was adrift since Sunday with 60 people aboard.

“At least 34 have drowned; it looks like there were 26 survivors.

“The information came from the Moroccan navy and a Spanish non-governmental organisation Caminando Fronteras,’’ he said. (Reuters/NAN)
