Hundreds Of African Migrants Feared Dead Off The Coastline Of Lampedusa

Immigrants are detained after their arrival in a temporary shelter center in Lampedusa, Italy on October 8, 2013. The search for bodies continues off the coast of southern Italy as the death toll of African migrants who drowned as they tried to reach the island of Lampedusa is expected to reach over 300 people. The tragedy has bought fresh questions over the thousands of asylum seekers that arrive into Europe by boat each year. By Tullio M. Puglia/Getty Images.
