More than 100 migrants are feared to have drowned off Libya's western coast after their overloaded boat capsized, coastguard officials said on Friday. It was unclear when the smugglers' boat had left for the unsafe trip to Europe or where they left from. Migrants try to cross to Europe through Libya by the sea route usually in flimsy inflatable boats provided by smugglers while some make it to worldwide waters where they hope to be picked up by global vessels, but are mostly picked up by Libya's EU-backed coastguard and are returned to Libya.
The motor caught fire and water began to enter the vessel, they said.

The poorly-equipped Libyan coastguard were forced to abandon most of the bodies of migrants who died in Friday's shipwreck "for lack of resources", a coastguard captain said.
Their rubber boat was rickety and overcrowded, he added. It was unclear when they embarked on the perilous trip for Europe or from where they had set off.
The proposed "regional disembarkation platforms" would be in North African nations such as Libya, with the aim of breaking the business model of human traffickers who ship migrants across the sea to Europe.
