At least 20 migrants from Africa died when their boat sank off Tunisia on Thursday as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to the Italian island of Lampedusa, a Tunisian security official told Reuters.

He said the coastguard rescued five people, and they were searching for about 20 others who were on board the boat, which contained about 45 people.
