Over 500 migrants rescued off Sicily


Palermo, August 20 - Over 500 migrants, including
women and children, were rescued off the coast of Sicily early
Tuesday after one of their three boats fell apart at sea.
Some 233 people were escorted to shore on the island of
Lampedusa by Italian Coast guard, while another 336 migrants
were saved off the coast of Agrigento.
So far they have been identified as Eritrean, Pakistani and
Syrian nationals, who told rescuers they had been at sea for
about 10 days.
While the summer in southern Italy is marked by large
numbers of migrants departing from North Africa, over 500 people
is an exceptionally big group to arrive at once.
