30 refugees die in boat accident off Italian coast

Apparently, a baby a few months old is also among the dead. It is likely that the overloaded boat broke up because of the high seas.

According to media reports, at least 30 people died in a boat accident involving migrants off Italy’s southern coast. The bodies were discovered on the beach of Cutro, in the province of Crotone, Calabria, and in the sea, Italian news agency ANSA reported on Sunday, citing police. The search for the missing continued and was hampered by the strong waves.

The overloaded boat broke in two because of the high seas. According to a rescuer, a newborn a few months old was among the victims.

Due to its geographical location, Italy is a particularly frequent destination for refugees wishing to move from North Africa to Europe. Around 105,000 migrants arrived in Italy last year, and thousands of arrivals have already been counted this year. Many people have drowned during the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea in recent years.
