Bodies are still being pulled from the waters off the Italian coast after a boat carrying migrants capsized earlier this week.

Report informs, via DPA, that fourteen more bodies were found about 200 kilometers from the mainland on Friday, the coastguard said.

The number of confirmed dead from the accident on Sunday night is now at 34 and it is feared that there are more bodies in the sea.

Survivors of the accident told aid organizations that at least 50 people were on board.

The coastguard said three ships would continue to search for further missing people in the coming days, supported from the air by aircraft from the Italian navy and the European border protection agency Frontex.

The boat set off from Türkiye, but capsized off the coast of the southern Italian region of Calabria.
