4 October 2013 Last updated at 11:10 BST

Italy is holding a day of national mourning, after a boat carrying about 500 African migrants sank off the island of Lampedusa.

At least 103 bodies were recovered and scores more are trapped in the vessel, which sank less than 1 km (half-a-mile) offshore.

More than 150 people were rescued, but another 200 of those on board the 20m (66-ft) boat are unaccounted for.

Gavin Hewitt reports from the port at Lampedusa, which is the focus of anger for many locals.
