Over 60 persons may have died after a boat carrying migrants capsized off Cape Verde in West Africa.


Reports say the boat was carrying migrants allegedly from Senegal, and was at sea for over a month. 


The International Organization for Migration (IOM) however says thirty-eight people have been rescued, including four children aged between 12 and 16.


Cape Verde officials have called for global action on migration to help prevent further loss of life.
