More than 200 migrants are still unaccounted for after their boat sank off southern Italy.
Rescuers have so far found more than 110 bodies, and 155 people have been pulled alive from the seas off the island.
Three residents from the island told the BBC's Julian Miglierini how they were feeling about the incident.
