Italian presidential guards stand at attention on October 21, 2013 on San Leone pier in the southern Sicilian city of Agrigento during a ceremony commemorating the migrants who drowned off the southern Italian islad of Lampedusa. Italy's worst-ever refugee tragedy happened in the early hours of October 3 when a boat laden with Eritrean and Somali asylum-seekers caught fire, capsized with an estimated 500 people on board and sank within sight of the coast, killing 366 people. The ceremony also remembered those killed just days after the first shipwreck, when another boat sank off Malta.
