A migrant boat sinking off the coast of Tunisia over the weekend left at least 21 people dead, a court said Tuesday, after four more bodies were found.

Seven survivors were rescued on Sunday and 17 bodies had since been retrieved.

There was little hope of finding more survivors among the remaining four or five missing passengers, said Sfax court spokesman Mourad Turki.
