Boats were carrying at least 120 people, according to International Organization for Migration

TRIPOLI (AA) - At least 15 people died when rubber boats carrying irregular migrants sank Saturday in the Mediterranean Sea near Libya, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Libyan Coast Guard teams detected the boats carrying 120 irregular migrants, the IOM said on social media.

At least 105 of the migrants were rescued.

The Mediterranean Sea is the favored route for migrants from Africa, most traveling through Libya, who are trying to get into Europe through Italy and the island of Malta.
