Reggio Calabria, August 16 - Funeral services were
being held Friday for an Italian police chief who died of a
heart attack while overseeing the rescue of 160 migrants at sea.
Cosimo Fazio, the 56-year-old head of the local Reggio
Calabria police department in southern Italy, died Thursday
after only 10 days on the job.
Summer is the busiest season for crossings by migrants
departing from North Africa, taking advantage of better sea
conditions.
Italy's reception centers are routinely overwhelmed.
According to the Italian Council for Refugees (CIR), more
than 18,000 migrants have died in the Mediterranean over the
last 15 years.
