Hundreds of rescued migrants disembark from NGO ship in Sicily

The Sea-Eye 4, one of the ships operated by the German non-profit Sea-Eye, docks in the southern Sicilian port of Pozzallo and disembarks 415 migrants rescued in the Mediterranean. Italy is one of the main points of entry into Europe for migrants from North Africa, mainly from Libya and Tunisia. More than 13,350 people have arrived on Italian shores since January, three times more than in the same period a year earlier, according to the interior ministry.
