A 7-meter metal boat with 40 people on board sank off the coast of Lampedusa. Italian coast guard and Swedish Frontex vessels rescued 39 Eritrean and Sudanese migrants, with one migrant confirmed dead. The survivors reported paying between 1,500 to 2,000 Tunisian dinars for the crossing. The 29-year-old Eritrean who died was reportedly in good health during the journey but lost his life during the rescue operation. This incident adds to a pattern of metal boats capsizing and sinking, leading to numerous migrant deaths in recent months.
