(ANSA) - Lipari (Messina), August 20 - Law enforcement
officers were forced to intervene to placate irate tourists
after a malfunctioning ferry bearing 210 people was forced to
cancel a scheduled trip amongst southern Italian Aeolian islands
and organize alternative transport for the travellers.
The Euroline ferry was en route from Lipari to Villa San
Giovanni via Vulcano when it suffered mechanical problems. Being
unable to continue its journey, the ferry was returned to shore
and the managers organized for buses to accompany tourists to
their original destination.
Local Carabinieri military police were forced to intervene
in order to placate the irate tourists amidst their complaints
about the inconvenience.
The archipelago of volcanic islands know as the Aeolian
Islands are located north of Sicily.
The eight isles, known as Le Isole Eolie in Italian, were
formed by volcanic activity over the course of 260,000 years.
Stromboli and Vulcano continue still today to display volcanic
activity Amid eruptions and smoke.
