12 Nigerian and Ghanian migrants who were traveling on a boat with Muslim migrants from Libya to Italy killed following religious clash
The illegal immigrants, 105 of them in number, left Libya on Tuesday in a rubber boat. When they sailed north across the Mediterranean Sea, a fight broke out and the Muslim occupants in the boat, mainly from Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal engaged in a fight with their fellow immigrants who were Christians and threw 12 of them overboard, Italian police said.
The Italian police have arrested 15 of the Muslims that carried out the attack and they will be charged with multiple homicide.
