ROME (AFP) - Around 100 refugees fleeing the unrest in Libya died on an overcrowded refugee boat that arrived Thursday at the Italian island of Lampedusa, a survivor said, but coast guard officials did not confirm the toll. "We were 300, but around 100, especially women, did not survive, and the men were forced to throw their bodies into the sea," a Moroccan female survivor was quoted by Italy's ANSA news agency as saying. The woman's claim contradicted information provided earlier by Italian coast guard officials, who said 300 badly dehydrated refugees were rescued from the boat. But Antonio Morana, the commander of the Lampedusa port, said rescue speedboats sent out to assist the refugees "saw clothes floating in the sea in the area where they were operating and maybe also corpses."
