Arrest after Lampedusa boat tragedy

A Somali man has been arrested in Italy in connection with October's boat disaster off the island of Lampedusa in which more than 350 migrants died.

He has been accused of being part of a group that smuggles people from North Africa, after survivors of the disaster aid that they recognised him.
