Shipwreck of migrants in the Mediterranean, 48 suspected arsonists and victory for the Blues

Did you miss the news this early morning? We’ve put together a recap to help you see things more clearly.

At least 34 migrants drowned in shipwreck off Syria, dozens missing

The balance sheet is likely to increase. At least 34 migrants have drowned off the port city of Tartous in northwestern Syria after a boat sank from Lebanon, the Syrian Ministry of Health said Thursday. Only about 20 people could be saved while the boat was carrying between 120 and 150 people, according to a Syrian estimate. There would therefore be up to a hundred missing. Rescue teams were dispatched to the scene of the sinking to try to find other survivors, but “the search at sea was interrupted in the evening due to strong waves”, added the Syrian official.

A total of 48 suspected arsonists were arrested this summer

When the firefighters were running after the fires, the gendarmes were tracking the arsonists… According to a provisional report from the gendarmerie unveiled on Friday, 48 people were arrested during this summer marked by a record number of burned areas, particularly in the South-West. The medical expertise that will be carried out during the investigations must make it possible to distinguish arsonists, who set fire to satisfy an impulse, from arsonists, whose act responds to a specific motive.

France – Austria: Led by the Giroud-Mbappé tandem, the Blues return to success

We had almost forgotten it with the mountain of extra-sporting affairs released in the press in recent days, but the France team was playing Thursday evening at the Stade de France. An insignificant match against Austria in the League of Nations, except that it was the penultimate before the World Cup, and the last at home. A meeting that the Stade de France public would not have missed for anything in the world, any more than the Blues, who quietly won against the Austrians (2-0). A success that brings the French out of the relegation zone, pending the decisive match in Denmark on Sunday evening. Bad news, the Blues have found a good Giroud-Mbappé doublet, both scorers, but lost Koundé and Maignan to injury.
