A handout picture released on August 19, 2016 by the Italian Red Cross shows crew members of the flagship rescue vessel Phoenix, a rescue boat run by the Malta-based NGO Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) and the Italian Red Cross (CRI), recovering the corpses of two women, one man and a baby in the Mediterranean Sea on August 18, 2016.
Two Syrian girls, one of them an eight-month-old baby, are among up to six people who died when a boat carrying would-be migrants to Europe capsized off Libya on August 18, rescuers said. Five bodies were recovered and one passenger was missing, presumed drowned, following the capsize. Some of the 21 survivors told aid workers there had been 27 people from eight Syrian families on the boat. The body of a five-year-old was picked up by a fishing boat, the organisations said. / AFP PHOTO / ITALIAN RED CROSS / YARA NARDI AND Handout / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY CREDIT "AFP PHOTO / ITALIAN RED CROSS / YARA NARDI" - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS+
