The Italian Coast Guard patrol boat G94 CAPPELLETTI sank in flames off Capo Bruzzano on the morning of 1 July.
It was stated that the fire broke out in the engine room of the boat and the crew had to leave the boat. It was announced that all 9 crew members were rescued by another patrol boat.
Although the cause of the fire is unknown, the use of the 27-meter G94 CAPPELLETTI in operations aimed at preventing the flow of illegal immigrants raises the possibility of sabotage.
