TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libya has recovered 82 bodies washed ashore after a boat packed with migrants sank near the western town of Zuwara, a Red Crescent official said on Friday. "About 100 people are still missing," said Ibrahim al-Attoushi, the Red Crescent official, adding that about 198 migrants had been rescued. The boat sank on Thursday after leaving Zuwara, a major launch pad for smugglers shipping migrants from sub-Saharan Africa or Syria to Italy.

The courtroom of the Holy See is seen at the opening of the trial of former Polish archbishop Jozef Wesolowski on July 11, 2015 before the case was postponedFormer Polish archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who would have been the first high-ranking church official to go on trial on paedophile charges, died overnight, the Vatican announced Friday. Wesolowski, 67, had suffered from health problems that last month caused postponement of his criminal trial, which was to be the first of its kind initiated by the Vatican against a church official. Wesolowski had been charged with possessing child pornography in Rome in 2013-14, and the sexual abuse of minors during his 2008-13 stint as the Vatican nuncio, or ambassador, in the Dominican Republic.
