The wreck of Lampedusa Island

This picture grabbed on a video released by the Guardia Costiera on October 4, 2013 shows immigrants on a Guardia Costiera boat after their rescue near Lampedusa on October 3. Italy today mourned the 300 African asylum-seekers feared dead in the worst ever Mediterranean refugee disaster, as the government appealed for Europe to stem the influx of migrants. As the grim search for bodies off the island of Lampedusa continued, an emotional Pope Francis said Friday should be a day of tears for a savage world that ignored the plight of refugees. Emergency services on the remote island -- Italy's southernmost point -- said they had recovered 111 bodies so far and rescued 155 survivors from a boat with an estimated 450 to 500 people on board.
