It is a new tragedy of desperation on the Sicilian coastline. One death, and according to the survivors, other are still missing: that is the tragic toll of the boat that arrived this morning on the beach of Frangitella, between Montallegro and Siculiana on the central eastern coast of the Province of Agrigento.
In Ragusa, the police and the Carabinieri have arrested four Egyptians. They are accused of being in charge of the fishing boat which carried 64 other Egyptians, including 15 minors, towards Sicily. The boat ran into difficulty 2 days ago and was rescued at sea by the Coastguard and the Finance Police. The migrants were taken to Portopalo di Capo Passero in the Province of Syracuse.
