We saw another vessel carrying 400 refugees sink, rescued migrants say
A group of rescued migrants who made an attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea in order to get to Europe told an Italian NGO Save the Children that they saw another vessel carrying some 400 migrants sink before their boat capsized.
Humanitarian workers have already confirmed that three vessels carrying migrants already are confirmed to have sunk or capsized this week.
Reports say more than 60 bodies are said to have been recovered, including those of three infants, and hundreds who are believed to be missing.
But the possible sinking of a fourth vessel had not been reported, said Giovanna Di Benedetto, spokeswoman for Save the Children in Italy.
