MALTA-ITALY-IMMIGRATION-REFUGEE-ACCIDENT

The covered bodies of two children are brought ashore at Hay Wharf in Valletta after being recovered by a patrol boat of the Armed forces of Malta on October 12, 2013, a day after a boat carrying migrants sank. More than 140 survivors, plucked from the sea after their overloaded boat sank in the latest deadly migrant tragedy to hit the Mediterranean, arrived in Malta. The sinking killed more than 30, most of them women and children, when the boat packed with people desperate to reach European shores went down off Malta near the Italian island of Lampedusa, according to officials.
