Private service for migrants who died at sea

Funeral to mark the death of hundreds of migrants who died trying to reach Italy earlier this month held in Sicily.

    A private service has been held to mark the death of hundreds of migrants who died trying to reach Italy earlier this month.

    The government had promised a state funeral for the victims.

    But as Claudio Lavanga reports from Agrigento in Sicily, that may have just been political rhetoric.
