Five dead on Lampedusa immigrant boat


Italian coastguards have recovered five dead bodies from a fragile vessel carrying illegal immigrants, close to the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa.

The 52 survivors on the vessel from Libya were in poor health after several days at sea and were treated on the island.

More than 200 more were rescued from two other boats.
