Πέντε, μέχρι αυτή την στιγμή, είναι οι νεκροί από το ναυάγιο πλεούμενου στα ανοικτά των λιβυκών ακτών.

Η μεγάλη βάρκα στην οποία επέβαιναν περίπου 590 μετανάστες ανετράπη σε απόσταση δεκαοκτώ ναυτικών μιλίων από τις ακτές της Λιβύης.

Για την άμεση διάσωση των μεταναστών κινητοποιήθηκαν τα πλοία Μπέτικα και Μπεργκαμίνι του ιταλικού πολεμικού ναυτικού, αναπτύσσοντας σωσίβιες λέμβους και ένα ελικόπτερο.

Μέχρι το απόγευμα είχαν διασωθεί περίπου 500 μετανάστες, ενώ συνεχίζονται οι έρευνες για τον εντοπισμό αγνοουμένων.

Το ιταλικό πολεμικό ναυτικό έδωσε νωρίτερα στη δημοσιότητα συγκλονιστικές φωτογραφίες από τη στιγμή της βύθισης, αλλά και από την επιχείρηση διάσωσης των μεταναστών από τα νερά της Μεσογείου.
