Migrants are seen in a boat during a rescue operation by Italian navy ship San Marco off the coast to the south of the Italian island of SicilyTWO migrants have been arrested for allegedly going berserk and killing 10 fellow passengers while on a boat from Africa to Spain.

An argument broke out when the Cameroonian pair believed a Nigerian priest’s prayers for salvation were in fact causing bad weather on the crossing, according to police.

The duo – who have not been named – are accused of hitting their victims with wooden planks, before pushing them overboard.

Police became suspicious when they noticed that all other survivors were going out of their way to avoid the pair.

Bad weather caused the boat to rock severely, also throwing eight babies overboard.

Only 29 of the 50 people – most of whom were Nigerians – who boarded the boat in Nador, Morocco, survived the journey to Europe.

The only child to survive the journey was a three-year-old girl, as all other infants were thrown overboard by the rough sea.

The pair are also suspected of robbing their victims of more than €1,500 before killing them.

  1. Do we want these people in ANY country ? Presumably they have been arrested & charged ?
    something dreadful has happened on this planet , is it because Borders were relaxed, is it
    because law enforcement have become soft ? Or is it in our food ? There is certainly a sickness
    in society from Corrupt Politicians & others in Authority, Police forces in USA are abusing their
    powers continually and seem to think it is quite acceptable, Priests are abusing children and
    covering it up, Nuns have stolen children and sold them.Animal cruelty has reached new heights
    of Depravity. Is their any Hope for humanity if not where can I run to ?

  2. Don’t panic Teresa, none of this stuff is new or any more menacing. We are just exposed to it all the more by modern technology. In fact in some ways that same technology will be the answer to much of it. Priestly abuse to take just one instance. You need to take timeout from the Rolling News (is it possible?) and read a book.
