The Italian Coast Guard found a shipwreck and recovered bodies of drowned migrants after a week-long search near the island of Lampedusa, as underwater footage filmed on Saturday shows.

Seven bodies were reportedly recovered from the sea bottom at a depth of 47 meters (154 ft) and were transferred to patrol boats.

On November 23, the coast guard rescued 149 migrants after an overloaded boat that departed from Libya capsized in stormy weather.
