The Italian coastguard says it has rescued nearly 6,000 people in recent days as they try to cross the Mediterranean on rickety boatsAround 40 migrants died when their inflatable boat sank off the coast of Italy, which Tuesday renewed an appeal to the EU for help in managing a relentless wave of arrivals. "Some (of the survivors from the inflatable boat) said 'very many' died, others said 'around 40'", Giovanna di Benedetto of Save the Children told AFP on Tuesday. "It's not enough to add 10 or so boats to those (operated) by the Italians," said Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
