Mediterranean migrants: Captain questioned over deadly capsize
Italian investigators have questioned the captain of a ship that capsized in the Mediterranean on Sunday, causing the deaths of more than 800 migrants.
The captain - a Tunisian named Mohammed Ali Malek - will appear in court in Sicily on Friday charged with mass homicide.
Prosecutors in Italy say he crashed the boat by mistake against a merchant rescue ship.
Twenty-eight survivors of the disaster are being cared for in Sicily, from where James Reynolds reports.
