Rescue workers carry the body of a victim on a stretcher. A survivor whose comments appeared in a video posted online said the migrants had been told that about 200 people would be on board but the smugglers had added another 50, causing the boat to founder. It was not immediately possible to verify the differing accounts, but the survivor's comments suggest fewer people might be missing than initially thought. REUTERS/Mohamed Abd...more

A rescued migrant lies in bed as he receives treatment at Rashid hospital in the port city of Rosetta, north of Cairo.

The International Organization for Migration urged Egypt to impose tougher penalties on human traffickers and address the concerns driving people to undertake the perilous journey. "Entire families, children and young people entrusted their lives to human smugglers, and risked everything aboard an unseaworthy boat that capsized and sank in the middle of the sea," Amr Taha, head of IOM's Egypt office, said in a statement. "We urge the parliament to pass (a) new anti-human smuggling law that should be a strong deterrent for smugglers." REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El Ghany

Relatives of missing persons are pictured. Many of those interviewed in the aftermath of the shipwreck off Egypt spoke of their desire to flee in search of a brighter future. Most cite a lack of jobs, low incomes, poor prospects and growing political repression in Egypt since general and now President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi seized power in mid-2013.

Migrants who were rescued from the boat are pictured. Five years after the 2011 revolt brought expectations of more freedom and social justice, some Egyptians have lost hope. "I want to flee. If I could, I would; I can't get married... or live (here). Everything is destroyed in Egypt. We are no longer Egyptian," said Gamal Abdel Dayem, a neighbor and relative of one of the drowned migrants. REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El Ghany

A rescued migrant lies in bed as he receives treatment at Rashid hospital in the port city of Rosetta, north of Cairo. One survivor said the vessel had waited for two days at sea so the smugglers could squeeze more migrants on board before heading north. But as they climbed in, the boat began to capsize. Panic spread as the boat tilted, casting people overboard. REUTERS/Mohamed Abd El Ghany

The bodies of victims are seen on a military boat in Al-Beheira, Egypt. Ahmed Darwish, 27, said he was in the water for seven hours. "The captain of the ship couldn't control the boat any more ... We told him this boat won't take us there safely ... The captain couldn't move the boat; it kept swaying until it fell on its side," Darwish said, as he lay in a blue gown on a bed at the public hospital in the coastal village of Burg...more
