Coffins of some of the African migrants killed in a shipwreck off the Italian coast sit in a hangar at the Lampedusa airport on October 5, 2013 in Lampedusa, Italy. The search for bodies continues off the coast of Southern Italy as the death toll of African migrants who drowned as they tried to reach the island of Lampedusa is expected to reach over 300 people. The tragedy has brought fresh questions over the thousands of asylum seekers that arrive into Europe by boat each year.
