300 Migrants May Have Drowned

GENEVA (AP) An international migration group says more than 300
people are believed to have drowned off the coast of Libya.

The International Organization for Migration says that Libyan
officials reported between one and three ships sank in Libyan
waters Monday.

Spokesman Jean-Philippe Chauzy says the group has confirmed the
information with diplomatic sources.

He says strong winds could have caused the vessels to capsize.
IOM says it believes the migrants were trying to cross from North
Africa to Italy.
