Yioham Tragedy was a tragedy that haunts many people in
On December 25, 1996, hundreds of illegal immigrants from
India, Pakistanand Bangladeshboarded the "Yiohan" in Maltato travel to from where they hoped to fan out across western Europe. But the ship sank in stormy waters, killing 289 of the around 450 people aboard. Sicily
A Bollywood movie is going to remember these 283 immigrants after 10 years. Kaafila is the name of the movie. Ammtoje Mann is the director of this movie and Sunny Deol, Ammtoje Mann, Sudesh
The Yioham tragedy, which claimed the lives of 283 immigrants on Christmas Eve ten years ago, has inspired a Hindi movie, Kaafila, which will be released in the New Year.
Kaafila, likely to be the first film of its kind in Bollywood, deals with illegal immigration and human trafficking.
The victims of the Yioham tragedy, the worst accident in the Mediterranean since World War II, were mostly Pakistanis, Indians and Sri Lankans who drowned near Porto Palo,
. They were to be transferred from the Yioham to a Maltese-registered ferry but there was a collision in the rough seas and the ferry carrying the immigrants sank. Sicily
It’s nice to see that we can have a movie like Kaafila in Bollywood. I just wish that there can be more movies like it. Bollywood really needs to grow up and do experiments.
