The U.N. migration agency says 28 bodies have been found after some 130 migrants went missing off Djibouti when two boats capsized.

A statement says the coast guard in the tiny East African nation continues a search and rescue operation after Tuesday’s accident. Witnesses said large waves caused the overloaded boats to tip over about a half-hour after departing.
