At least eight migrants have died and 86 have been rescued after a smugglers' boat started to sink in the Mediterranean Sea off Libya.

Video footage of the rescue attempt has been released, which shows a number of migrants holding onto lifesaving floats in the sea.

A search and rescue mission is now underway to find any possible survivors, with an aid group not involved in the rescue claiming there may be dozens of migrants still missing.
