Italy Arrests Four People Smugglers, With One Linked to Four Migrant Deaths, Including a Woman


Italian authorities in Agrigento have arrested four foreign national human traffickers, one of whom is believed to be connected to the deaths of four migrants, including a woman.

The four alleged people smugglers, three Egyptian nationals and a man from Guinea, were taken into custody by Italian state police in the Sicilian city of Agrigento on Thursday morning following an investigation into landings on the island of Lampedusa last month.

“All of them violated the rules provided for by the Consolidated Law on Illegal Immigration by transporting non-EU citizens to Italian territory, for which the status of irregular foreigners was then ascertained, leading them from the African coasts to Italian territorial waters, onboard boats unsuitable to make the crossing,” investigators said.
