Friday official day of mourning in Italy

10-04-2013 08:24 BJT

The Italian government has ruled Friday an official day of mourning, after at least 100 migrants died trying to reach the coast of Sicily. The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, says Europe must take collective responsibility for Thursday’s disaster, in which a boat carrying hundreds capsized.

"We can’t leave one or two countries alone to deal with the problem. This is a European problem and I once again repeat my call to all members of the European Union, to accept responsibility for this refugee tragedy. And I do not accept at all that there are member states who say "we have no more room." said Martin Schulz.
