The landings of migrants along the coasts of southern Sardinia do not stop: between yesterday evening and this morning 77 people arrived on the island.
The patrol boat of the Air and Naval Operations Department of the Guardia di Finanza, last night, intercepted at least six small boats off the coast of Sardinia at various times, carrying a total of 65 people on board.
The migrants were transported to the port of Sant’Antioco and entrusted to carabinieri and police for transfer to the first reception center in Monastir.
In the morning there were two other landings in Pula, in the Cagliari area. The carabinieri first blocked a group of five migrants, presumably Algerians, who were trying to reach the center, and a few hours later another seven.
All were transferred to the reception center in Monastir where, after identification, they will remain in quarantine.
Meanwhile, the Sea Watch 4 rescued 102 other people from an overloaded dinghy. On board the ship of the German NGO there are now 295 migrants “who need to disembark as soon as possible in a safe harbor”.
On the scene, he reports, “also a boat of the so-called Libyan Coast Guard ready to intercept them”.
Apulia also arrives. A boat carrying about sixty migrants on board was intercepted by naval units of the Guardia di Finanza off the coast of Torre Pali, in Capo di Leuca. The vessel, a trawler, is escorted to the port of Gallipoli. Rescue machine activated. On site there are Usamf doctors, 118 health workers and volunteers from the Italian Red Cross. With today’s disembarkation, the number of migrants arriving on the Salento coasts from 3 November rises to almost 700. (
