Funeral held for four migrants who died at sea
Four migrants who perished at sea in August were buried at the Addolorata Cemetery today in the presence of some members of their families and other migrants.
A total of six migrants died as 75 African migrants, mostly Nigerians, spent seven days at sea under the blazing sun before being spotted by a merchant ship.
Two of the migrants were carried away by the sea, two died in the dinghy and two died while being rescued.
Among the four dead who were brought to Malta and buried today was 14-year-old boy.
