Up to 700 migrants are feared dead after the boat carrying them capsized in the Mediterranean Sea. 700 souls: their hands one moment outstretched towards the future and the next frantically treading water in the useless effort to catch one more breath.

April 19, 2015 : Italy is leading yet another expedition in the mass grave that the Mediterranean Sea has become, fishing out at least 700 bodies from those waters that separate the hopeless from entitled.

Us and them, a distinction without a difference.
