Arrivo di clandestini nel mare di LampedusaLAMPEDUSA (Ag) - A hundred people reached the pier Favaloro to prevent the docking of a patrol boat of the Harbour with 116 migrants on board, rescued off the island.
According to some witnesses, whenever the patrol tries to approach the demonstrators are threatening to jump into the water.
"The island is collapsing. There is a real danger of unrest", says the mayor Bernardino De Rubeis, commenting on the situation in Lampedusa, where about 2,800 migrants massed in the reception center. "Hundreds of Tunisians are now around the island" - added - "The Islanders are exaggerated and there is a real risk of serious disorders". The request to build a tent city has proved impossible for the opposition of the islanders themselves who, technically impossible to provide all services to more than 3,000 people on an island equipped with a reception center with a capacity of less than 800 persons. "
We are ready to accommodate those coming to our shores but not those that are recovered at sea, which should reach Sicily without switching Lampedusa. The alternative is to use the many resources of the security forces to carry them in the first safe harbor".
