The landing took place in the area below the Castle of Palma di Montechiaro and the migrants, in small groups, fled the streets and the countryside. Many have poured onto state highway 115, towards Agrigento. They ask for motorists in transit and to board the cars.

At least three Coast Guard patrol boats engaged in the search for the mother ship. Police, carabinieri and soldiers of the harbor master’s office are sifting – between roads and countryside – the whole area close to the landing site.

Another 52 sub-Saharan African migrants, including some women, have been blocked by the carabinieri of the station Linosa (Ag) after that with a boat of about 10 meters, they managed to arrive on the rocks of the smallest island of the Pelagie. The Coast Guard has already been informed that the 52 will have to be transferred to Lampedusa. In the meantime, a boat in international waters has been intercepted and is traveling to Italy.
