Nearly 1,000 Migrants Rescued Off Italy

The Italian coast guard said Wednesday it’s bringing roughly 1,000 rescued migrants to its southern ports after a number of boat rescues. The refugees were in five dinghies and two larger boats, one of which capsized; 10 died at sea. They are Syrians, Palestinians, Libyans, Tunisians, or from sub-Saharan Africa. Each week, hundreds, if not thousands, of migrants are reaching Italy via smugglers’ boats.
