Italy - Survivors of what may be the worst tragedy in living memory involving migrants crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa arrived in Catania, Sicily just before midnight last night.

The 27 migrants, plus one survivor evacuated to Sicily by helicopter, had been traveling on a wooden fishing boat carrying up to 800 people when it capsized near Libya, as a cargo vessel was coming to its aid.

Of the 28 survivors, most are from Sub Saharan Africa from Mali, Gambia, Cote d’Ivoire, Eritrea, Senegal, Sierra Leone. Others are from Bangladesh and Tunisia.

taly - Los sobrevivientes de lo que puede ser la peor tragedia de que se tiene memoria, protagonizada por migrantes que cruzaban el Mediterráneo desde el norte de África, llegaron a Catania, Sicilia, justo antes de la medianoche de ayer.

Los 27 migrantes, además de uno de los sobrevivientes evacuados a Sicilia en helicóptero, viajaban en un barco pesquero de madera que transportaba a unas 800 personas y que se hundió cerca de Libia cuando un buque de carga se acercaba en su auxilio.
