ITALY - Drama shipwreck off Lampedusa

"Carnage on the road to Italy," as the newspaper the day after the sinking of a boat with nearly 300 people on board, some 70 kilometers southwest of the island of Lampedusa. The newspaper said about 250 people died. The boat, with a length of 13 meters, was part of Zuwarah April 4, Libya, and was carrying Somalis and Eritreans.

Fifty of them were rescued. Since January, more than 22,000 immigrants from North Africa landed on Italian shores.
