A corpse was earlier this evening retrieved by the Armed Forces of Malta in Marsaxlokk and taken ashore to Xatt It-Tiben.

The corpse, on which no identification documents were found, belonged to a male and was in an advanced state of decomposition.

Magistrate Antonio Micallef Trigona was informed of the case, who in turn appointed a number of experts to help in the investigations, which are still ongoing.
