At least 34 people drowned in Maltese waters south of the Italian island of Lampedusa when a boat packed with hundreds of Syrians and Palestinians capsized on Friday, the same day another 12 migrants died in a shipwreck off of Egypt.

Secretary General Ban Ki moon called for action to prevent future tragedies "that places the vulnerability and human rights of migrants at the centre," while Pope Francis lamented that "too often we are blinded by our comfortable lives, and refuse to see those dying at our doorstep."
