Italy coast guard: many survive migrant capsizing

Italy's coast guard says many of the migrants aboard a boat that capsized off Lampedusa have survived and helicopters are taking the injured to the Sicilian island.


Coast guard spokesman Marco Di Milla says "a good number" of the estimated 200 people have been rescued. He says the coast guard received a satellite phone call from the boat and was able to locate it based on the satellite coordinates. (AP)
