A video of a dead body floating in the Mediterranean Sea near a cruise ship has been widely circulated on social media.
The ship’s passengers gathered by the rail, many taking videos with their phones of the body, which is speculated to be that of a migrant. There was a yellow life jacket on the body as well.
Meanwhile, several videos spreading this week on social media of alleged Moroccan migrants floating near a coast in Morocco - either dead or alive - after failing to reach their final destination, show the scale of the migrant crisis hitting the North African country.
Nearly 150,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean so far this year, according to the United Nations, and at least 2,826 others have died making the journey.
