(AGI) Palermo, Feb 15 – Italian boats rescued 393 immigrants in the Strait of Sicily on Saturday. The Aliseo ship rescued 198 migrants, of which 15 were minors, and the Espero ship saved another 195. Added to the 79 people rescued by the Espero on Friday, the total has now reached 472. The Aliseo is currently on another rescue mission, after the Coast Guard’s general command reported a rubber dinghy with 110 immigrants south-east of Lampedusa; the sighting was confirmed by the MSC Maria and then by one of the Aliseo’s choppers, which found three more dinghies between 120 and 140 miles from Lampedusa.

    I can not say anything about others but for Eritreans I blame our government’s mishandling responsibilities to push
    people into these kind unnecessary situations .

    ahmed saleh,

    Wether you like it or not these people are ignorant. Everyone is sick of such kind of tragedy news. That’s why no one care about the news as these people are taking the risks knowingly. By now, I don’t think anyone can afford helping even his brother or sister for such risks. Everyone don’t want to answer private calls as they think the call is from Libya or Sudan.

    WHAT IS THE SOLUTION? MIGRATION?

    For Eritreans, the only solution to avoid this risks is get read this dictator give them break from military service.
