MALTA-ITALY-IMMIGRATION-SHIPWRECK

Asylum seekers living in Malta, arrive to attend an interfaith funeral ceremony of 24 migrants who died after a fishing boat carrying migrants capsized off the Libyan coast, on the helipad at Mater Dei Hospital in Malta on April 23, 2015. Calls have mounted for a military response to the Mediterranean migrant crisis, but experts say such plans are totally unworkable and mark an attempt to militarise what should be a purely humanitarian problem. European leaders will gather in Brussels to discuss new strategies in the wake of the latest disaster on April 19, in which hundreds of migrants drowned when their boat capsized on the way from Libya to Italy.
