May 26, 2016 – Pictures: Overcrowded Migrant Ship Capsizes Into Sea Off Libyan Coast, Italian Navy Rescues 562 As 5 Drown

A boat carrying over 100 migrants from Libya tumbled into the Mediterranean sea yesterday as Italian ship approached.

In a bid to escape being arrested by the Italian Navy, some of the passengers rushed to the port side of the ship, a shift in weight that proved too much.

Suddenly passengers, mostly men began to tumble into the Mideast sea.

About 562 migrants were rescued by the Italian navy while 5 others drowned.
