    Mediterranean ships find five dead, rescue over 1,100 migrants

    MILAN (AP) – Italian vessels have recovered five bodies and rescued 674 people packed on a fishing boat adrift in the Mediterranean off the Libyan coast, the Italian Coast Guard said on Sunday, while European charities reported saving more than 500 more.

    Some of the survivors had to be plucked from the sea in the Italian operation on Saturday that was carried out 190 kilometres off the coast of Calabria by a Navy mercantile ship, three Coast Guard patrol boats and a financial police boat. All of those rescued were brought to ports in Calabria and Sicily.
