Italy Migrant Deaths_Rich.jpg

A ship carrying African migrants toward Italy caught fire and capsized off the Sicilian island of Lampedusa Thursday, spilling hundreds of passengers into the sea, officials said. The scope of the tragedy at Lampedusa, with 111 bodies recovered so far, 155 people rescued and up to an estimated 250 still missing, according to officials, prompted outpourings of grief and demands for a comprehensive European Union immigration policy to deal with the tens of thousands of migrants fleeing poverty and strife in Africa and the Middle East.
