Italy recovers bodies from destroyed boat

  • The Italian Navy mentioned that over 14 people died after a boat filled with militants sank in the Mediterranean. Media reports indicate that the total number of missing people has not yet been estimated since it wasn't known as to how many people were onboard in the first place. 

    According to Italian authorities, the boat sank about 100 miles from the island of Lampedusa and nationalities of the surviving migrants weren't immediately disclosed. 

    CNN notes that about 2,000 migrants have been rescued by the nation's military only in the past five days.
