Hundreds of African migrants are killed every year trying to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe.

The head of the UN refugee agency has called on Europe to be generous and welcoming to other migrants, as it has done to Ukrainian refugees following the deaths of dozens of African migrants at sea.

The announcement comes after 90 people were killed in international waters of the Mediterranean Sea when an overcrowded boat capsized Libya.

Medical charity Médecins Sans Frontieres said only four people had been rescued from the raft on Saturday.

UNHCR chief Filippo Grandi said Europe has welcomed refugees from Ukraine “generously and with efficiency” and should consider doing the same for other refugees.
