At least 20 migrants rescued by the Italian coastguard overnight have died of hypothermia, medics told AFP Monday.

"There are many dead, certainly at least 20," said a doctor at an emergency treatment center on the island of Lampedusa, located south of Sicily and close to Libya, from where the group of over 100 migrants are thought to have set off in a bid to reach Italy.
