Twelve migrant labourers die in Italian road crash
Twelve migrant laborers died on Monday in southern Italy when the van they were travelling in smashed into a lorry, local officials said.
Pictures from the scene showed a white minivan flipped on its roof and lying in the middle of the road following a head-on collision with a lorry that had been carrying flour.
The accident happened two days after four African migrants died in a similar crash in the same region.
Thousands of migrants work in the Italian agriculture sector, harvesting fruit and vegetables for often only a few euros an hour.
