The bodies of six people, including a baby, have been washed ashore in Libya in the latest tragedy of the migration crisis.
The identities and nationalities of the bodies have not been confirmed but the area is the main launching point for refugees fleeing Africa and the Middle East.
Of the estimated 600,000 refugees who have made the perilous trip across the Mediterranean this year, it is thought up to 3,000 have perished.
The harrowing pictures are reminiscent of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi whose body washed ashore on a beach in Turkey last month.
Aylan, who was pictured face down on a beech, died along with his brother Galip and mother Rihan after the family tried to reach Greece on a crowded dingy.
The picture galvanised public grief in response to the escalating crisis.
Many artists created a series of haunting illustrations to promote the human toll of the disaster.
Of the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing to Europe, 19,196 have claimed asylum in the UK from January through to July.
