Eleven migrant agricultural workers were killed Monday when the van transporting them during harvest season smashed into a lorry in southern Italy, the Italian fire service said.

All those who died in the crash, which took place near the city of Foggia in Puglia, were non-EU citizens, the fire service told AFP. Every summer thousands of migrants from around Europe and Africa work in the area picking tomatoes.
