Tragedy in the Mediterranean: Was the migrant boat disaster avoidable?

More than a hundred migrants were rescued from an overcrowded fishing vessel that capsized southwest of the Greek port of Pyrgos on Wednesday. At least 78 people have been confirmed dead, making it Greece's deadliest migrant shipwreck since 2016. However that figure could rise, with estimates of the number on board ranging from 400 to 750.
