ROME - There's been another disaster at sea for migrants heading to Europe.

A fishing boat crammed with as many as 700 migrants capsized in the Mediterranean Sea north of Libya overnight.

Only a few dozen have been rescued. More than 900 people are known to have died in failed crossings this year, including 400 presumed drowned when another boat capsized last week.
