THirty immigrants, two cadavers arrived this morning; more feared dead

A 30-foot wooden craft containing thirty live immigrants presumably of North African origin arrived on the coast of Torre Salsa in the town of Siculiana in the province of Agrigento at nine this morning. The immigrants said when they left the coast of Libya, there were 40 people aboard, the rest drowned at sea. The Italian Coast Guard has found two of the bodies, according to a report in La Repubblica's online Palermo edition. One of the two bodies is still at sea, being tossed by the waves and so difficult to recoup.

Eight of the immigrants were stopped by the carabiniere ( federal police), two of the immigrants are minors. No one knows what happened to the others on board, the article says, they might have disappeared in the countryside.
