Rome, August 16 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano on Friday praised residents of Pachino in Sicily who
swam out to sea to help Syrian refugees reach the beach safely.
"The images aired yesterday by television channels of
dozens of swimmers that from the beach pushed out generously to
assist refugees coming from Syria, many of which were children,
to reach the shore and safety, do Italy proud", Napolitano said.
This shows how "when faced by tragedy, which is experienced
on a daily basis on (stepping-stone island of) Lampedusa and
elsewhere with arrivals of those escaping from wars and
persecutions, a sense of humanity and solidarity prevails in
Italians, stronger than any sense of prejudice of fear", he
added.
