Italy has recovered the bodies of a child and six other people from the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, more than a week after a crowded migrant boat capsized off the coast of the island of Lampedusa.

Men from the Italian coast guard, dressed in white suits and wearing masks over their faces, carried the bodies on to the dock of the island’s small port in black bags on Thursday. Wooden coffins were laid on the port side.
