What happend on this boat that caused this to happen and why were those 12 singled out.
those boats are an every day occurance, but up unti this incident there does not seem to have been any violence among the passengers.
What was different here?
the reason is religious hatred, the excuse is probably overcrowding.

evidence: the other christians would have been mudered as well had they not formed a human chain.

Terrorists are terrorists. It does not matterwhat if any religion they profess to follow. They are all the same.
Overwhelmingly, these terrorists pick one particular religion, the one where survey data show a quarter or more of its adherents support their actions.

Which indicates that the 15 arrested were probably the only ones being hostile.
What is not mentioned in the news article is if it was only Christians linking together or if there were Muslims linking with the Christians in support of them.

While the 15 were Muslims, this does not mean they were following Islam. If any Muslims linked with the Christians to protect them, they are the ones that were following Islam.
The story is not clear on that. but reading this I come to the conclusion that the other Muslims on the boat helped protect the Christians
CNN reported April 16 that the police in Palermo, Italy, arrested the men after hearing the harrowing tale from other migrants. The fifteen were all from Senegal, Mali, and the Ivory Coast and were charged with suspicion of murder. According to others aboard the boat that conveyed the migrants, the rest -- who claimed to have opposed the "drowning attempt" -- were spared but only because they formed a human chain to prevent anyone else from being forced into the water.

Other people on the voyage told police that they themselves were spared "because they strongly opposed the drowning attempt and formed a human chain," Palermo police said.
