Italy rescues more than 400 migrants in 24 hours

“The Italian navy rescued more than 400 migrants from two boats south of Sicily on Saturday and Sunday as the immigration crisis that killed hundreds in shipwrecks last year continued. On Saturday afternoon, 236 men, women and children, mostly from Africa, were rescued and were being taken to a port near Syracuse in Sicily, the navy said in a statement. Another boat carrying about 200 others was identified on Sunday morning and the rescue was under way in the afternoon, a separate statement said.”
