Italy: 1,700 migrants rescued off the Sicilian coast

Italy coordinated the rescue of almost 1,700 migrants on a dozen boats over the weekend, mainly from Syria and Eritrea.

Balmy spring weather and improved sea conditions have seen a new wave of refugees and migrants from the Middle East and Africa who regularly risk the hazardous journey across the Mediterranean to reach the European Union.
