4 Migrants Arrested in Lampedusa After Returning to Italy Following Expulsion

The mobile team from the police station in Agrigento has arrested four immigrants who landed in Lampedusa. Despite an expulsion decree, the foreigners returned to Italian territory by landing on the Pelagie Islands. As ordered by the prosecutor, the four are currently under house arrest in contrada Imbriacola hotspot. There are currently 548 migrants in the facility, with no new arrivals during the night. Rough sea conditions in the Sicilian Channel are slowing down crossings from Tunisia and Libya. Yesterday, there were three landings on the island with a total of 174 migrants, much lower than previous days. 1,038 migrants have been transferred from the initial reception facility to Porto Empedocle, Augusta, and Catania.
