More migrants arriving in Lampedusa; migrant with chickenpox evacuated by Open Arms

During the night, 40 migrants arrived in Lampedusa. A small boat from Sfax with 19 Tunisians (including 5 women and 4 minors) was intercepted by the coast guard’s V7007 patrol boat. Meanwhile, 21 Eritreans, Ethiopians, and Sudanese who had departed from Garabulli in Libya were stopped on land by the Carabinieri. The Carabinieri also seized the 7-meter boat used for the journey. An urgent medical evacuation took place from the NGO ship Open Arms. A migrant who claimed to be Bengali and was rescued on Friday was found to have chickenpox. He was taken to a clinic after being brought to the dock by the coast guard. Yesterday, there were 23 landings on the island, totaling 788 people. Among them, a migrant was found by immigration police claiming to have arrived alone at the commercial dock and then made his own way to the reception center. These accounts are still being verified by the police.
