Bernat Armangue Associated Press Migrants looked toward Sicily a day after being rescued while crossing the Mediterranean Sea
The migrants, who were bound for Italy, were picked up off the western city of Sabratha.
Mr Grandi praised the efforts of rescue groups including the Italian coast guard, Frontex (the European Border and Coast Guard Agency) and non-governmental organisations, saying they had saved tens of thousands of lives. And an estimated 200,000 are expected to arrive in 2017.
"Europe needs a comprehensive and co-ordinated migration and refugee response that takes into consideration the right to seek asylum and provide legal and safe alternatives to the boat smugglers", he says, and adds that: "Safe returns or other options should be handled quickly and with dignity for those concluded not to be in need of global protection".
Seconds later, Kellie Osman, 21, from Sierra Leone, was shot by one of the smugglers.
Separately, police said three Nigerians were detained in Sicily on Thursday and face charges of allegedly killing, torturing and sexually assaulting other Africans while they were trapped in Libya awaiting a passage to Italy. Larger wooden boats carrying several hundred migrants are rarer.
