By Karin Strohecker and Ahmed Elumami EISENSTADT, Austria/TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Austria said on Friday 71 refugees including a baby girl were found dead in an abandoned freezer truck, while Libya recovered the bodies of 82 migrants washed ashore after their overcrowded boat sank on its way to Europe and scores more were feared dead. The U.N. refugee agency said the number of refugees and migrants crossing the Mediterranean to reach Europe had passed 300,000 this year, up from 219,000 in the whole of 2014. The victims - 59 men, 8 women and four children, including a girl of 1-2 years old - were probably from Syria, police said.
