80 migrants rescued, 20 feared dead

A dinghy carrying some 80 migrants has been intercepted by AFM patrol boats some miles off Malta. The dinghy was found in distress early this morning. The migrants appeared to have been at sea for some days. They said there had originally been 100 people on the boat, but 20 perished. The rescue is the first in several months and comes at a time when the number of migrants in detention has slipped to a low of just 29. At one time there were over 2,000.
