Tourists sunbathing on Sicily’s southern beaches got a nasty reminder on Monday that their suntrap is a deathtrap for many migrants seeking a better life in Europe.

The bodies of 13 migrants were washed ashore after the crew of their overloaded boat forced some of its 200 passengers to disembark in the surf.

Italian coastguards were alerted to the unfolding tragedy by tourists but arrived too late to save everyone on board. Two men, suspected of being guides, were arrested.

Some 60 migrants attempted to escape from the scene on foot, but in his panic one was hit by a passing car which did not stop, and is now in hospital in a serious condition.
