Just a few minutes ago, yet another vessel loaded with migrants arrived in the province of Reggio Calabria, precisely in Lazzaro (Motta San Giovanni).
Landings continue in the Strait area. After great work done during the night by the Messina Coast Guard, has just been intercepted in the hinterland of Reggio Calabria, precisely to Lazarus (Motta San Giovanni) yet another vessel loaded with migrants. This Sunday is also a very complicated day on the refugee front, for an issue that has become full emergency. The episodes follow one another on the Reggio coasts by now regularly every day, but the necessary accommodation facilities to protect the health of these people are lacking. Only two days ago, in fact, another 300 refugees arrived in the port of Reggio. It will now be the task of the authorities to secure newly disembarked migrants, carry out the classic identification procedures and activate the protocol of anti-Covid health control measures using a swab.
Around 2:10 pm the boat arrived at port of Reggio Calabria. In total, there are 60 migrants, rescued aboard a sailing boat by a patrol boat of the Coast Guard. The group is composed precisely of Iranians (35) and Iraqis (25). There are also women and minors. At the moment the transfer to the Balloon is in progress.
