400 people feared dead in Mediterranean

More than 400 people were feared to be dead as their boats drowned in the Mediterranean Sea. Most of the victims were thought to be of Somalia origin, along with some fleeing from Ethiopia. They were trying to enter Italy by the sea route from Egypt. It’s not new for such accidents to happen in the Mediterranean Sea where scores of people try to enter Europe from Africa illegally. Though these migrants knew of the perils at the sea and legal threats at the new land, they are forced to leave their nations, torn with poverty and civil wars. It was almost at this time last year, that more than 800 people were dead in Mediterranean Sea in a similar manner. And now, the curse seem to have fallen on the migrants again.
