Italy retrieves seven bodies from October 7 migrant shipwreck

Italy has recovered the bodies of a child and six other people from the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, more than a week after a crowded migrant boat capsized off the coast of the island of Lampedusa.

Men from the Italian coastguard, dressed in white suits and wearing masks over their faces, carried the bodies on to the dock of the island’s small port in black bags on Thursday. Wooden coffins were laid on the port side.
On the day of the shipwreck, Oct. 7, the bodies of 13 women were recovered and the coastguard said 13 men and women had survived the sinking of the boat.
