African Union demanded a probe into the treatment of migrants and refugees at the Morocco-Spain land border after at least 23 died in the attempted crossing.
A woman was found clinging to the boat with a dead man and woman next to her, rescuers say after the accident that is feared to have killed 52 African migrants.
A boat carrying 200 people sank a few hours after leaving a Senegal fishing town, marking the deadliest shipwreck recorded this year by the UN migration agency.
The boat sank 10 kilometres from the coastline near the city of Sfax, a member of the coastguard said. Rescue operations are continuing.
Spanish NGO says pregnant women among the dead and 167 people were found adrift off the coast of Libya. Meanwhile, EU member states extend Mediterranean rescue operation Sophia for 18 more months.
