Italian police arrest 3 in deadly migrant boat wreck:


Italian authoritie­s arrested three people and were looking for a fourth person who they think trafficked up to 200 migrants aboard a wooden boat that smashed apart on rocks off southern Italy on Sunday, killing at least 65 people. The coffins of the victims found were laid out in an indoor sports arena in the southern city of Crotone, with small white coffins for the youngest of them and brown wooden ones for the others. Lt. Col. Alberto Lippolis said a Turkish man and two Pakistani nationals had sailed the boat from Turkey to Italy despite the terrible weather and were identified by survivors as “the main culprits of the tragedy.” A fourth man is being sought.
