A boat carrying migrants in the Mediterranean
That ship had carried out other Mediterranean rescues and had 374 rescued migrants on board.
Libya is the biggest jumping-off point for migrants seeking refuge on European shores.
Sub-Saharan Africans hoping to flee poverty or war have taken advantage of Libya's power vacuum, which has allowed smugglers to operate mostly without restraint.
The AFPreports 23 of the bodies were recovered Friday, with another three subsequently found.
Malfi said the girls may have been thrown off their rubber dinghy into the waters of the Mediterranean, according to NPR's Sylvia Poggioli. Of the 400 people rescued and brought overseas Spanish vessel, Cantabria, 90 women and 52 minors, including a week-old-baby were saved.
The vessel lowered a "seemingly endless line of black plastic body bags" in Salerno, where they were placed in coffins, AFP reported.
Women are more likely to drown because they can not swim as well as men or because they sit on the lower levels of the vessels carrying them, away from life jackets, according to a 2012 study published in Sage.
That's a smaller number than the same area saw in the same period past year, where 159,467 migrants arrived in Italy and 3,615 people died on the route, according to the IOM.
This rescue was one of four separate rescue missions executed over the weekend.
Nearly 75 per cent of those migrants - about 111,500 people - landed in Italy, and the rest reached the shores of Greece, Cyprus and Spain.
Since the collapse of Moammar Gaddafi's regime, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya has skyrocketed.
"Police Prefect Malfi called this a human tragedy and said his office has appealed to neighboring towns to provide dignified burial for the Nigerian women". "But also women traveling alone with their children have been abused".
The remains of 26 Nigerian women who died while trying to cross into Europe on a migrant boat have been recovered from a Spanish warship off the coast of Italian City, Salerno.
