Migrants arrive in Porto Empedocle, 12 coffins from Lampedusa

The bodies of the 12 migrants recovered from two NGO ships were disembarked in Porto Empedocle. A funeral ceremony began immediately on the dock, with both Catholic and Islamic rituals, in the presence of the Prefect of Agrigento Filippo Romano, the Police Chief Tommaso Palumbo, and the Mayor of Porto Empedocle Calogero Martello.

The body of the 5-month-old baby, who died of malnutrition, was not transferred and remained in the morgue of the cemetery of Cala Pisana in Lampedusa.
