More than 30 dead, more than 40 survivors in Italy migrant shipwreck - firefighters

More than 30 people have died and more than 40 have survived a migrant boat shipwreck in southern Italy, a spokesman for the Italian firefighters' service told Reuters on Sunday.

The death toll "has surpassed 30," Danilo Maida, spokesman for the firefighters in the Calabria region, said.

Firefighters are still looking for more survivors at sea, but conditions are harsh, making the search difficult, the spokesman added.
