Immigration Tragedy: 30 Dead on a Ship With 600 People on Board in the Sicily Channel

Still a tragedy in the Channel of Sicily: thirty migrants – the exact number still do not know – are dead, perhaps by asphyxiation in a barge that was rescue in the night by a ship of the Italian Navy.

According to what has been learned, the boat was loaded with more than 600 migrants. When the ship Grecale has reached, for some dozen of them (the number of victims varies between 27 and 30) there was nothing more to do. Crammed into a narrow part of the barge, they died  very probably for asphyxiation. The location of the bodies has prevented their immediate recovery: only a couple of corpses were carried on board the military vessel, which is now by escorting the barge from the port of Pozzallo, where it should arrive this morning. Already rescued instead two pregnant women.

That was completed in the night tragically was another day of rescue for the men and the units of the device “Mare Nostrum”. Friday – apart from the intervention of the last night – the ships of the Navy and Coast Guard have rescue seven barges and have saved a total 1,654 people lots from African coasts. The first intervention, on Friday morning, was performed by the ship Dattilo of the coastguard, which took on board 416 migrants who were on a barge in difficulty. But Four boats rescued from the ship Grecale: a first intervention, in relation to a barge that had a leak and was adrift, has permitted the rescue of 227 people, including 19 women and 18 children. They were then rescued other 218 people (including 29 women and 39 children) on a barge and 84 on a dinghy that had difficulty of flotation. The last intervention involved a barge with a edge 327 migrants, of which 13 women and 25 children. There are a total 382, on the other hand, immigrants who were on the two boats rescued by Orione ship of the Navy
