Italy's Coast Guard says the Navy has rescued 3,000 migrants off the coast of Libya after responding to requests for help from more than 20 vessels. Italy has been routinely carrying out similar rescues, bringing hundreds of migrants to its shores. More than 2,300 people have died trying to reach Europe this year. For more on the ongoing migrant crisis, Itayi Viriri spokesman, International Organization of Migration, joins VOA’s Vincent Makori via Skype from Geneva, Switzerland.
