Albanian ship "Kateri i Radės" with 120 people on board managed to get in Italian territorial waters, but soon after was approaching the coast of Otranto in Italy, collided with the Italian military ship, "Sibilla".

The balance of this tragedy was 84 fatalities, while 24 bodies were found not.

Today, after 14 years still the guilty has not been found. Prosecution of the second degree in Lecce, has blamed the Albanians for the tragedy because the Albanians did not respond to combat ship calls "Sibilla" to stop and to give the necessary assistance.
