People go about “normal” activity while 2 lay dead on the beach

TORREGAVETA, Italy (July 21) – Italian newspapers, an archbishop and civil liberties campaigners expressed shock and revulsion on Monday after photographs were published of sunbathers apparently enjoying a day at the beach just meters from where the bodies of two drowned Roma girls were laid out on the sand.
Italian news agency ANSA reported that the incident had occurred on Saturday at the beach of Torregaveta, west of Naples, southern Italy, where the two girls had earlier been swimming in the sea with two other Roma girls. Reports said they had gone to the beach to beg and sell trinkets.
Two of the girls had obtained rescue, but the other two could not be reached in time, apparently the girls were cousins aged 12 and 13. While the two dead girls lay on the beach people sunbathed and ate lunch on about 50 foot away, the church has also came out to condemn this act.
