ROME - Italian rescue divers have found some 20 bodies underwater near a boat carrying African migrants that caught fire and sank off the island of Lampedusa on Thursday, a coast guard official said, bringing the total of known dead to more than 100.

"The coast guard divers have begun inspections: they have found around 20 bodies around the boat at a depth of about 40 meters," Floriana Segreto told Reuters.

She said divers were continuing the search.
