Almost 250 refugees are missing and feared dead after two shipwrecks were found in the Mediterranean, the United Nations reported Tuesday.

The first shipwreck took place Friday night, when a rubber dinghy sank after sailing with 132 people aboard for several hours, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

About 50 were rescued or disembarked in Sicily on Sunday, but some 82 are feared dead.

Another shipwreck took place Sunday off the coast of Libya, where 163 people are feared dead, the agency said. Seven people, including a woman, were rescued by Libyan authorities.

The latest incidents bring the total number of people believed to have died or disappeared while trying to cross from North Africa to Italy to more than 1,300 since the beginning of the year.

So far this year, more than 43,000 migrants and asylum-seekers have used the central Mediterranean route to reach Italy.
