rome - There has been a sloop of 126 refugees in the Mediterranean. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) fears that the boat has been skipped and the occupants are drowned.

The IOM has the testimony of four detainees, including at least two Sudanese, who knew the Sicilian capital of Palermo. They stated that smugglers had taken away the engine of the sloop, so that the vessel sank.

The four survivors were rescued by Libyan fishermen, who put them on board another refugee boat. That boat was finally intercepted by the Italians and saved the passengers. The unfortunate sloop was from Libya and on its way to Italy. The route from Libya across the Mediterranean to Italy is considered the most dangerous from Africa to Europe. The IOM counted 1800 dead and missing on that route.
