Lampedusa migrants undeterred by dangers of crossing the Mediterranean

A Nigerian migrant has told the BBC that he knew about the dangers of crossing from Africa to the Italian island of Lampedusa, but was not put off the voyage.

The man, who wished who remain anonymous, told Kasim Kayira that once he had paid the fee to the people traffickers, even the news that hundreds had been killed when a boat capsized off the island had not deterred him.
