Search continues two days after Italy shipwreck

STORY: Rescuers pulled the body of a man out of the sea on Tuesday (February 28) and four more bodies on Monday (February 27) as search and rescue efforts were partially hindered by bad weather.

Rescuers said most of the migrants came from Afghanistan, as well as from Iran, Somalia, Syria and elsewhere. Pakistan's foreign ministry said 20 Pakistani citizens were on the boat, with four missing and 16 survivors of the nighttime shipwreck.

Many of the victims washed ashore close to where the vessel sank near Steccato di Cutro, while some of the bodies were recovered from the sea.
