The casket of one of the migrants who died when their boat capsized off in the Canal of Sicily is carried aboard a Italian Navy ship at the Lampedusa island harbor, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013. A fishing boat packed with 500 African migrants capsized on Thursday Oct. 3, 2013 off the shores of the island of Lampedusa, causing more than 300 dead. The enormous scale of the tragedy, which could become the largest death toll in a migrant shipwreck in the Mediterranean on record, has created momentum for a comprehensive European Union immigration policy to cope with the tens of thousands fleeing misery and strife in Africa and the Middle East.
