The survivors told the investigators that they have seen the arrested Nigerians throw some of the 13 victims into the water, after they showed themselves nervous during the voyage. Others would voluntarily have left the boat out of desperation. Once on land the police had already identified and arrested three people smugglers, among also one of the five arrested Nigerians charged with homicide. The other four were detained in the temporary shelter of Cassibile. The arrests were confirmed this morning by the investigating judge of the Court of Siracusa.
