African Migrants Feared Dead Near Lampedusa

Laura Boldrini (L), Chamber of Deputies President, and Giusi Nicolini, Mayor of Lampedusa, attend a press conference, on October 4, 2013 in Lampedusa, Italy. The search for bodies continues off the coast of Southern Italy as the death toll of African migrants who drowned as they tried to reach the island of Lampedusa is expected to reach over 300 people. The tragedy has bought fresh questions over the thousands of asylum seekers that arrive into Europe by boat each year.
