Italy has rescued about 5,200 men, women and children and recovered three dead bodies from overcrowded boats in the Mediterranean Sea since early Thursday. A navy spokesman told Reuters that calm seas have led to this latest wave of migrants who have left North African shores for Italy over just three days, with merchant ships and a Maltese vessel also aiding in the rescue efforts. The merchant tanker Norient Star recovered three bodies from one of the migrant boats, the spokesman said, adding that he had no details about the cause of the death or identity of the victims.
