110 refugees arrived Lampedusa at dawn today

From the Corriere del Mezzogiorno:
110 migrants mostly from Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Ghana arrived in good shape at five this morning on the shores of Lampedusa, the Sicilian island closest to Africa. Among them were 10 women and 4 children.

From me: In the clamor over the plight of white Syrian immigrants who cross the Mediterranean from Turkey to Greece, the black African immigrants fall through the cracks, at least on US news reports. It's as if they don't exist. Their journey is much harder, taking them years to first traverse their continent,cross the Sahara, then the wide sea.
