Migrants: in 16 landed in Lampedusa

The 16 migrants who had been intercepted on a small boat near the island by the Guardia di Finanza arrived in Lampedusa. The small boat that had buoyancy problems was reported and drifted. The first migrants were transferred to the Yellow Flames patrol boat and once disembarked they were transferred to the Contrada Imbriacola reception center. They would all be of Tunisian origin. In the meantime, transfers are planned to Porto Empedocle of the 102 already identified migrants who are at the island's hotspot, via one of the two ships that connect Lampedusa and Linosa with Sicily on a daily basis.
