Letta declares Lampedusa shipwreck victims Italian citizens
'A day of mourning in Italy and all Europe, which must do more'04 October, 19:26
''Today is a day of mourning in Italy, one that involves all of Europe,'' Letta continued.
Letta agreed with Pope Francis that the fatal shipwreck in which 300 migrants, many of them women and children, are feared dead is ''a disgrace''. Europe must ''raise the level'' of intervention in order to prevent such tragedies from repeating, the premier added.
