Europe Migration Lampedusa

Europe Migration Lampedusa, Italian authorities have intercepted some 800 migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean as EU leaders meet in Brussels to discuss the problem.

Dozens of women and children were among more than 200 migrants on one boat found in difficulty 25 miles (40km) south of the island of Lampedusa.

Two other boats were picked up further south of Lampedusa, one with nearly 100 Eritreans reportedly on board.

Hundreds of migrants trying to reach Europe have drowned in recent weeks.

Southern EU states including Italy and Malta have relaunched appeals for more support and resources, prompting the European Commission to call on EU countries to offer “additional and urgent contributions”.
