Italian prosecutors are looking into circumstances surrounding the deaths of 26 Nigerian female migrants at sea.

According to BBC, a Spanish warship Cantabria docked in the southern part of Salemo carrying 375 migrants along with the dead women.

There are suspicions that the girls may have been sexually abused and murdered as they attempted to cross the Mediterranean.

Five of the surviving migrants are however being questioned to get details on what happened to the women who were mostly aged 14-18.

Majority of the survivors were Sub-Saharan Africans from Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, The Gambia & Sudan.

90 women (8 pregnant) were among the survivors along with 52 children. Some Libyan men and women were also among the rescued.

    Nothing should make you go to these countries for anything.
    Stay in Nigeria and make it work
    My heart is bleeding for 26 girls between the ages of 14-18 dead, and no one wants to say what happened to them
    What kind of money are the others searching for that is worth human lives…

    If you are not flying by air on a plane please stay in your country.
    All these risk are not worth it. Is it not the same Spain its citizens are running out off due to unemployment and hunger that you people want to die to get to?
    illiteracy is a really big problem in Africa that needs to be tackled

    How does someone even have sex at sea in a tiny boat like the one in the picture, let alone with 26 women?

    What were the living conditions in that boat?
