Italian authorities discover dead migrant

Authorities in Venice on Wednesday discovered a dead migrant, and a second man who was said to be in critical condition, after opening the luggage compartment of a truck that had been aboard a ferry which had set sail from the western Greek port of Patra.

The ferry had made a brief stop at the northwestern port of Igoumenitsa before continuing to Venice but it remained unclear whether any inspections had been conducted there.

A third man was said to have been in the compartment and to have emerged from his ordeal relatively unscathed.

Italian and Greek authorities are investigating the incident while the cause of the migrant’s death remained unclear.
