EU leaders call for emergency talks after 700 migrants drown off Libya

14 posts in this topic

PALERMO, Italy (Reuters) - As many as 700 people were feared dead after a fishing boat packed with migrants capsized off the Libyan coast overnight in what officials said may be the Mediterranean's worst disaster as thousands flee poverty and war to Europe.

Top officials in Europe, whose recently-downsized border protection program has been criticized by international aid groups, said urgent action was needed. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said foreign ministers would discuss the issue at a meeting in Luxembourg on Monday.

If confirmed, the death toll would bring to 1,500 the total number of dead since the beginning of the year resulting from the flow of migrants seeking to flee insecurity in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.

Only last week, around 400 migrants were reported to have died attempting to reach Italy from Libya when their boat capsized.

On Sunday twenty eight people were rescued and 24 bodies recovered from the 20 meter-long vessel, which sank around 70 miles from the Libyan coast, south of the southern Italian island of Lampedusa, the Italian coast guard said.

The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) said later that around 50 people had been rescued of the 700 reported to be on board.

"They are literally trying to find people alive among the dead floating in the water," Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said.

1,500 already dead and the illegal migration season has just begun.

Sad,  many many more will die,  its a world wide problem. Directly tied to poverty,  and war. It will soon bring down every nation on the planet Im afraid. Plus the migrations getting ready to occur from Natural Disasters.

Those boats flip over all the time. Europe doesn't care they allowed in millions of people who will burn it down. Their just starting to realize that now. They were  blinded as is most of the world.

I know these illegal migrants are desperate but they're also not too bright.

I would never get on a boat so packed full of people for any reason.

Desperate times call for Desperate measures.  Doesn't matter if your fleeing from poverty,  crime, etc.  Or if your on a religious fanatical mission to kill.  People will take any means necessary,  and or available to them,  to get where there going.

 Whole world has gone astray.

Human lives mean nothing to the NWO elites (Bilderbergers).

In order to achieve their OneWorld Government, they use "silent weapons for secret wars," which see on many sites.

Loading and transporting hapless sheeple onto trains, planes, and boats is a strategy to destroy cultural identities of countries with intact human services: food, medical care, relative safety, etc.

It also reduces the surplus population of Africa, where the Illuminati plan to move after teotwawkii.

We the sheeple allow it, just as we allow taxation without our consent.

Refugees allowed into Italy after threat to drown babies

Almost 1,000 illegal immigrants landed in Italy yesterday after threatening to throw babies into the sea if their rusting ship was turned back.

 

The 240ft Monica had been spotted in international waters during the night.

 

When Italian coastguard boats drew alongside, the crews were shocked to see men and women on board begin dangling the infants over the side.

 

The refugees - mostly Kurds and many said to be heading for Britain - calmed down only when they were assured they would not be turned away from Italy.

 

The ship was towed to the Sicilian port of Catania, where 400 men, 200 women and 361 children were taken to Red Cross shelters.

 

A 21-year-old woman had earlier been lifted off by helicopter after giving birth to a girl. They were doing well in hospital last night.

See what I mean? Horrifying!! 

​It is horrifying.

Italian police: Muslim migrants threw Christians overboard

Muslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard -- killing them -- because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday.

Italian authorities have arrested 15 people on suspicion of murdering the Christians at sea, police in Palermo, Sic

The original group of 105 people left Libya on Tuesday in a rubber boat. Sometime during the trip north across the Mediterranean Sea, the alleged assailants -- Muslims from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal -- threw the 12 overboard, police said.

I wonder what they'll do with 15 they arrested.

Will they be given a trial and then incarcerated in Italy or will they be deported?
