More than a thousand migrants including women and children were rescued on Thursday in nine different operations off the Libyan coast, the Italian Coastguard said.

The migrants, who were travelling in rubber dinghies and a wooden fishing vessel, were taken off their boats and sent to ports in Sicily by Italian emergency rescue workers.

According to the International Organisation for Migrants, nearly 250,000 migrants have reached Europe by sea so far in 2016 and some 3,000 people have died in the attempt.
