The Italian coastguard said it had coordinated the rescue on Sunday of more than 2,150 migrants as they sailed across the Mediterranean on rickety boats, bringing the number of people rescued this weekend to 5,800.

The bodies of eight migrants were found on board two of the rescued vessels, while two other people drowned after they jumped into the sea to rush towards the rescue teams, the coastguard said.
