Teenage Girls Found Dead At Sea

A Spanish warship docked in the port of Salerno in southern Italy.

"They were on a dinghy that was also carrying men", he told Italian reporters who asked whether the women were on a sex-trafficking boat.

Italian authorities are investigating after the bodies of 26 teenaged girls were recovered in the Mediterranean Sea on Sunday.

"Currently, there is no reason whatsoever for celebration", said a spokesman for Alarmphone, a network of activist and migrant groups providing a 24-hour hotline for refugees in distress at sea. Rescuers said that survivors were found hanging onto the boat while the bodies of those died were floating around them. Women might also try to rescue their children from drowning, putting them at greater risk of death. Many from sub-Saharan Africa, are fleeing war and persecution; others from impoverished nations in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia have made the treacherous journey in search of better economic opportunities.

The two men arrested in connection with the finding have been identified as Libyan Al Mabrouc Wisam Harar and Egyptian Mohamed Ali Al Bouzid. Since the start of 2017, 2,839 migrants have died on the central Mediterranean route.

From January to November of this year, some 111,552 migrants have arrived in Italy by sea, according to the International Organization for Migration, and 2,639 migrants have died along that route.

The others arrived in Greece, Cyprus or Spain.

Since the collapse of Moammar Gaddafi's regime, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya has skyrocketed.

More than 150,000 migrants have reached European shores, of which around 74 percent are Italian arrivals. "But also women traveling alone with their children have been abused".

In February, Unicef reported that levels of sexual violence and abuse along the Central Mediterranean migration route made it one of "the world's deadliest and most risky migrant routes for children and women".

"Police Prefect Malfi called this a human tragedy and said his office has appealed to neighboring towns to provide dignified burial for the Nigerian women".
