Hundreds of people are feared drowned after their boat capsized off the coast of Libya. The Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, said he would be demanding in an emergency summit of E.U. leaders this week. The Maltese Foreign Minister, here is Dr. George Philp."The most important part of the whole process is these human traffickers, who are making loads and loads of money out of people whom they put on these boats which are not seaworthy, and they just push them out to sea for, to be their fate. And this is the worst part of it. So one we have to look at the crux of the problem, which is how to control these human traffickers from not making more money out of these poor people who are looking for a better future, and instead of finding a better future, they ended up at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.”
