Italian investigators have questioned the captain of a ship that capsized in the Mediterranean on Sunday, causing the deaths of about eight hundred migrants. The captain would appear in court in Sicily on Friday charged with mass homicide. Prosecutors believe he was responsible for a collision with a Portuguese merchant ship that had come to the rescue of his overcrowded boat. Laurent Laurens Jolles speaks for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Italy.“We are talking about a boat that had several layers, in which people were sort of packed as sardines, really. And when the boat capsized, it just immediately went down and so the persons who were on top managed to, probably, get out and jumped into the sea. And, well, some of them died, but others were the ones that are the survivors.”
