Libyan Refugees Found Dead on Ship


Twenty five Libyan refugees were found dead in the engine room of a boat fleeing Libya on Monday. The Italian Coast Guard found the bodies after it received a call for assistance from the ship.

The ship left Libya over the weekend, carrying 300 people, more than double its capacity. An investigation has been opened into the causes of death.
