The organisation Human Rights Watch (HRW) has called the European Union (EU) to act immediately the refugee situation the Mediterranean Sea. The call follows the latest tragedy that saw least 700 migrants perish an attempt to flee from their troubled homelands and reach Europe. This brings the death toll to over 1,000 in the past week. HRW spokesperson Judith Sunderland said: "The EU is standing with arms crossed while hundreds die its shores. These deaths might well have been prevented if the EU had launched a genuine search-and-rescue effort." Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi singled Libya as the key problem and said efforts should focus refugee boats leaving Libyan ports.

The 28-member EU is fire within its policy to scale down efforts to save lives sea. Divisions began last year when the EU cut its search-and-rescue budget two-thirds. Martin Schulz, president the European Parliament, said: "Europe can do more and Europe must do more. It is a shame and a confession failure how many countries run from responsibility." Maltese PM Joseph Muscat warned: "We will all be judged the same way that history has judged Europe when it turned a blind eye the genocide this century and last century." Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy said: "This is the umpteenth time we hear yet another human tragedy the Mediterranean….Words won't do any more."
