500 Feared Dead After Migrant Boat Sinks in Mediterranean SeaAs many as 500 people are feared dead after a migrant ship sank in the Mediterranean Sea, the United Nation’s refugee agency (UNHCR) reported today. A UNHCR team interviewed some of the 41 survivors (37 men, three women, and a 3-year-old child) who were rescued by a merchant ship and taken to the Greek city of Kalamata on April 16. The survivors, who were of Somali, Ethiopian, Egyptian, and Sudanese decent, told the UNHCR that their group of 100 to 200 people, which departed last week from Libya on a smaller ship, was transferred to the larger boat by their smugglers.
