1100 migrants saved this weekend

Today, Sunday, alone saw 1100 migrants saved from the Strait of Sicily. The Libyan traffickers sent off eight rubber rafts all at once. Also saved were two tiny boats full of complete Libyan families. This is a new phenomenon, according to a report in the daily La Repubblica. The Libyan families are autonomous immigrants escaping war in their own country, not victims of nor aided by the libyan traffickers. They come in tiny boats more regularly now, the Libyan families, sign of another fault that opens on the frontline of the migrations of populations in flight.

Another 2,319 migrants rescued from the Mediterranean this weekend are expected to arrive in Sicily tomorrow morning at various ports around the island.
