Nigerians allegedly sexually abused, murdered at Mediterranean Sea

Nigerians allegedly sexually abused, murdered at Mediterranean Sea”

The bodies of 26 Nigerian women were recovered from the Mediterranean Sea, and Italian prosecutors are probing whether their deaths are linked to sex trafficking.

Most of the women, aged in large part between 14 and 18, were drowned when the rubber boat carrying 64 sank on Friday while crossing the Mediterranean.

A seemingly endless line of black plastic body bags were lowered by crane from a Spanish ship onto the port side in Salerno, southern Italy, where they were placed in coffins and loaded onto waiting hearses.

A lot of them were between the ages of 14 and 18.

Italian media reported that the women's bodies were being kept in a refrigerated section of the warship. A lot of them were aged 14-18.

They can have poorer swimming skills compared to men and their attempts to save their children often lead to their drowning, as does the heavier clothing they wear, he said.

Italian media report a total of 375 migrants rescued from the sea and now in the warship are sub-Saharan Africans from Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, The Gambia and Sudan.

Police have detained 7 people for questioning including two men of Libyan and Egyptian origin who are believed to be the captains of the vessel.

Five migrants are now being questioned at the port.

People-smuggling gangs charge each migrant about $6,000 (£4,578) to get to Italy, $4,000 of which is for the trans-Saharan journey to Libya and many migrants have reported violence, including torture and sexual abuse, by the gangs.

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. A total number of 2,839 have died so far this year along all primary Mediterranean routes. This group includes people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, who are likely to be granted refugee status, as well as people who are seeking jobs and better lives, who governments are likely to rule are economic migrants.
