Vatican City, July 1 - Pope Francis will travel to
Lampedusa on July 8 to celebrate Mass with migrants on the
southern Italian island and local people, Vatican sources said
Monday.
Lampedusa, which is between Sicily and North Africa, is a
main stop-off point for boats carrying migrants trying to enter
Italy.
The number of migrants increases annually in the summer
months as sea conditions improve and Lampedusa's migrant
reception centre has been packed well beyond its capacity in
recent weeks.
Many people, usually packed inside unsafe boats, die each
year trying to make the trip from North Africa to Italy.
