MADRID - A Spanish fishing boat has rescued a boat carrying 29 illegal immigrants off the coast of Libya

Sailors on the fishing boat 'Our Mother of Loreto', found one person was dead.

The fishermen, from Santa Pola, Alicante, rescued the immigrants earlier on Thursday.

It comes as the EU largely rejected a move to share responsibility for the immigrants arriving in Europe.

But the EU security minister Franco Frattini said: "The first responsibility is to save them."
