Hundreds Feared Dead After Migrant Boat Capsizes

A major search-and-rescue operation was underway Sunday to save up to 700 migrants after their boat capsized south of Italy, NBC News reported. Twenty eight people have been rescued, while 24 bodies have been recovered in the incident, which happened in an area just off Libyan waters, south of the southern Italian island of Lampedusa, an Italian coast guard official said. The boat is believed to have capsized when migrants moved to one side of the overcrowded vessel when a merchant ship approached "that they hoped would rescue them," UNHCR spokeswoman Carlotta Sami told NBC News. One survivor reported 700 people were on board, while another put the figure over 900, NBC News reported. If confirmed, the disaster would be one of the worst seen during the decades-long crisis in the southern Mediterranean. Migrants seeking a better life in Europe have died by the thousands in the body of water in recent years while fleeing poverty and bloodshed in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Read »
