Hundreds of illegal migrants from Africa are trying to get to Italy by boat through the Mediterranean on a daily basis.
716 illegal immigrants were rescued by the Coast Guard vessel "Dattilo." 350 people were brought to the board of "Fiorillo," also owned by the Italian Coast Guard. Another 450 people from Africa were rescued by the Italian Navy.
This is not the first time Italy faces the rescuing of illegal immigrants in the Mediterranean.Source: RIA-NOVOSTI
