Religious leaders embrace near the coffins with the bodies of 24 migrants after an inter-faith burial service at Mater Dei Hospital in Tal-Qroqq, outside Valletta, April 23, 2015. European Union leaders who decided last year to halt the rescue of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean will reverse their decision on Thursday at a summit hastily convened after nearly 2,000 people died at sea. Public outrage over the deaths peaked this week after up to 900 migrants died last Sunday when their boat sank on its way to Europe from Libya.
