Migrants arrive on Italian island


– More than 1 400 migrants arrived on the Italian island of Lampedusa at the weekend, media reports said on Sunday.

The mass landings sparked calls from far-right politician­s for action to stem the flow, amid fresh moves by Italian authoritie­s against the rescue boats which operate in the central Mediterran­ean.

About 15 boats arrived on Lampedusa from Saturday night onwards, Italian news agencies said. –
