Messina, November 5 - Italian police intercepted a
fishing boat with 169 migrants on board near Capo dell'Armi, a
point on Italy's southeastern tip, and escorted it to the city
of Reggio Calabria during the night between Sunday and Monday.
Twenty-five women and 33 children were among the
passengers.
Most of the migrants, who said that they were Afghans and
that they had departed from Istanbul three days ago, have been
taken to a reception centre.
Police have detained around 10 of them and are trying to
establish who the migrant traffickers are.
An aero-naval division of the Guardia di Finanza police
force spotted the boat, which was flying a Greek flag, about 140
miles southeast of Capo Passero, near Siracusa, in Sicily.
The police watched and waited until boat entered
territorial waters before intercepting it.
