ITALY—The Italian coast guard said nearly 100 people, including a pregnant woman and several children, were killed when a boat carrying migrants from Africa capsized off the coast of Italy and caught fire.

Up to 500 people may have been on board. So far nearly 160 people have been saved.

Pope Francis has said, “We pray to God for the victims of the tragic shipwreck.”
