Lampedusa, June 18 - An estimated 1,000 immigrants
were at a southern Italian holding center with a maximum
occupancy of 300 people on Tuesday.
The latest arrivals, 259 migrants, came late Monday to the
island of Lampedusa, which is between Sicily and North Africa.
Officials were working to move the migrants to different
facilities.
In the meantime people were seen overcrowding balconies and
staircases at the Lampedusa center.
The number of migrants to Italy increases annually in the
summer months as sea conditions improve.
However large numbers of people, usually packed inside
unsafe boats, still die en route.
