Italy Calls on Europe for Help After 40 More Migrant Deaths
More than 40 migrant deaths have been reported off the Sicilian coast after an inflatable boat capsized. Italy has called on the rest of Europe to "share the burden of the growing migration crisis in the Mediterranean," as the Italian foreign minister reports 90% of rescue efforts falling on the Italian navy. The event comes just days after 400 people were killed from a boat capsizing on its way from Libya, during which Italian coastguard transported two vessels with an estimated 1,100 migrants to Sicily. Fifteen muslim migrants were arrested and accused of throwing 12 people off board for religious reasons.
