1,000 lost on one boat - this woman hopes to name them
On 18 April 2015 more than 1,000 refugees and migrants left Libya in an overloaded fishing boat bound for Europe. On a moonless night in the Mediterranean the vessel sank. But those who drowned are not forgotten - for the last five years a team led by an Italian forensic pathologist has been on a mission to name them.

"There's a body that needs to be identified, you identify it - this is the first commandment of forensic medicine," says Dr Cristina Cattaneo, professor of forensic pathology and anthropology at the University of Milan.
Cattaneo's obsession is naming the dead. That is normal if a plane crashes in Europe, she says. Why should it be different for migrant travellers?
"There are so many tombstones in European cemeteries with 'unknown' written in Italian in place of a name, and the date of death. And that's it. I think this is tragic. It's the ultimate insult that someone can receive."
Cattaneo and her team have opened files for more than 350 missing persons whose families believe they may have died on the shipwreck of 18 April 2015.
"This means 350 families have approached some sort of authority looking for their dead in this incident. Five years have gone by and these people are still looking for their loved ones," she says.
The people who got on that old boat in Libya came from a dozen African countries, including Senegal, Mauritania, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Mali, Gambia, Somalia and Eritrea. There were Bangladeshis on board too. The man steering the boat, a Tunisian, together with a Syrian, would later be convicted of manslaughter and human trafficking in an Italian court.
