The Armed Forces of Malta have retrieved a body that was spotted in the sea of Xatt l-Aħmar in Gozo late this morning.

The police said details were still scarce but the body was transferred to Mgarr Harbour on an AFM vessel.

The body is believed to be that of a diver since Xatt l-Ahmar is a popular diving spot. It is still to be identified.


This was the second incident at sea since Wednesday, when a Polish man died after being found face down in the water at Ghajn Tuffieha.
