Italy Migrant Boat Shipwreck: More Than 100 People Feared Dead

There are fears more than 100 people, including children, have died after their boat sank off Southern Italy.

At least 63 migrants are confirmed to have died, with 12 children including a baby said to be among the victims.

The vessel, thought to have carried some 200 people, broke apart while trying to land near Crotone on Sunday.

Italy's Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has urged EU institutions to take action to stop clandestine migrant boat journeys.

Bodies were recovered from the beach at a nearby seaside resort in the Calabria Region.

The coastguard said 80 people had been found alive. One survivor was arrested on migrant trafficking charges, customs police said.
