The death toll from a migrant ship that sank off the Tunisian coast last weekend has risen to 58 after Tunisia recovered 38 bodies on Thursday July 11th, according to the Tunisian Red Crescent.

More than 80 African migrants are feared to have drowned in the incident that might be one of the worst migrant boat disasters to date. The boat capsized after setting off for Europe from neighbouring Libya, Reuters reported.
