A body is being lowered down from a Maltese Navy ship at the Valletta harbor, Malta, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013. A Maltese ship has brought 143 survivors from a capsized smugglers' boat to Malta while a search continues for victims. Italian Naval spokesman Cmdr. Marco Maccaroni said 34 people drowned after the boat capsized Friday afternoon. Other survivors in good health were still onboard an Italian frigate, which Maccaroni said also rescued 180 people from other boats in the same area overnight. Malta's Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said Saturday that most of the migrants in the latest tragedy were fleeing civil war in Syria. (AP Photo/Lino Arrigo Azzopardi) less
