Lampedusa, 360 migrants leave the island aboard a regular ferry

A total of 360 migrants have left the Imbriacola hotspot in Lampedusa, where there were originally 803 guests. They are being transferred by the Prefecture of Agrigento, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Interior, in an effort to quickly relieve the overcrowded reception center. During the night, 113 migrants arrived via three different boats, rescued by the coast guard and finance police off the coast of Lampedusa. Yesterday, approximately 450 migrants landed on the largest of the Pelagie Islands. The migrants are from various countries, including Mali, Sierra Leone, Benin, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Sudan, and Cameroon, and paid between 2,000 and 3,000 Tunisian dinars for the journey. Some, specifically 16 individuals, collectively paid 6,000 dinars, self-financing their crossing.
