Egypt migrant boat 'sunk deliberately', survivors claim
Reports have emerged of the sinking of a migrant boat in which up to 500 people may have drowned last week off the coast of Malta.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) quoted two Palestinian survivors as telling them that the traffickers deliberately sank the boat after an argument on board.
The Maltese authorities have yet to comment.
