KABUL (Pajhwok): At least 20 migrants are missing in a shipwreck incident in Italy, says a media report.

The seven-metre-long boat capsized in the Italian rescue area, the Italian news agency ANSA reported yesterday.

The agency said a fishing boat rescued 34 migrants, including eight women and six children, while 20 others were still missing.

According to the agency, 819 irregular migrants arrived in Lampedusa on 21 boats over the past 24 hours.

Data from the Italian Ministry of the Interior showed that more than 36,600 migrants have arrived in the country by sea since 1 January 2023, compared to about 9,000 who arrived in 2022.
