Italian Carabinieri wear masks as they follow the transfer of migrants from an Italian military ship in the port of Pozzallo, Sicily, on July 2, 2014Five migrants were arrested on Tuesday by Italian police accused of killing fellow passengers aboard a boat in which 30 bodies were found by rescuers earlier this month, Italian media reported. According to the witnesses, migrants locked in the hold panicked as the air ran out and forced the door and stormed the bridge. The boat began to sink and after clashes between two groups of passengers on the bridge — one that wanted to brave the high seas and continue the voyage, and another that wanted to return to Tunisia — fighting broke out. Messina’s chief of police estimated that 50 of the migrants were thrown overboard and around 60 were stabbed and then thrown into the sea.
