Revolt in overcrowded immigrant center; more coming

Inhumane conditions caused inmates to protest at an immigration holding center in Palermo this morning where 250 people are being held in a center designed to hold no more than 180 people, according to a report in La Repubblica. More immigrants are on the way. By tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. the Norwegian ship "Siem Pilot" acting as border police for Frontex in the Strait of Sicily will deposit 730 migrants saved in six different sea rescue operations at the port of Pozzallo. Some one hundred of these people are women, and about ten of them are pregnant.

It will be interesting to see if the U.S. media report on this huge influx of African immigrants expected to arrive in Sicily early tomorrow morning.
