In this photo grabbed from a footage released by the Italian Navy Sunday, Oct. 13, 2013, migrants receive help from two raft from the Italian Navy ship Libra, off the Sicilian island of Lampedusa Saturday, Oct.12, 2013.  In recent days hundreds of migrants have drowned as smugglers' ship packed with migrants sank or capsized. The deaths have sharpened calls for a coordinated European response to the wave of asylum-seeker fleeing war and repression making their way to Libya to embark on a sea journey, mostly in rickety smugglers' boats en route to Italy's southernmost island of Lampedusa, just 70 kilometers (50 miles) away. Despite the perils, the boats keep coming. Authorities have rescued hundreds more at sea this weekend. (AP Photo/Italian Navy HO)
