Ten die when boat sinks off Lampedusa

Text size Aa Aa

At least ten people died and as many others are missing when a boat carrying around 100 illegal immigrants sank off the coast of Sicily. The ten metre long vessel went down around 16 kilometres from the island of Lampedusa. An Italian navy ship was following the boat and moved to help when it got into trouble. Illegal immigrants often try to enter the EU through the island in the southern Mediterranean.
