I’m over 685 and migrants arrived at Lampedusa on a 15-meter iron fishing boat. The boat landed on Monday evening, at the commercial dock, after being intercepted a few miles from the coast by the patrol boats of the Guardia di Finanza who escorted it to the port. The disembarkation operations, which include a first medical triage, concluded just before 1:00 am: the migrants are originally from Morocco, Syria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Chad, Sudan, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Senegal, and among them there they are also women and children.
After the identification procedures and health checks, five were taken to the island’s outpatient clinic because they were sick, while the others were taken to thehotspot where, at the moment, there are 1091 people, despite the available places are 250. In the hours immediately preceding there were other 5 landings on the island for a total of 119 people. The fishing boat, intercepted by patrol boats eight miles from the coast, left Zuwara, in Libya.
