Forty-six Sri Lankans attempting to illegally migrate to France's overseas island La Reunion by sea have been captured, the Sri Lankan navy said on Saturday, Xinhua reported.

Those people set out aboard a fishing trawler from Negombo, a coastal town outside Colombo, in December last year and were apprehended on Friday night, the navy said in a statement.

The group comprised 43 men including the crew of the fishing vessel, two women and one boy, and they will be handed over to the country's Criminal Investigations Department for further investigations, said the navy.
