    (ANSAmed) - ROME - Immigrants are continuing to land on Italy's coasts. After 36 Nigerians, including six women, were rescued on Sunday night by coast guards some 40 miles south of Lampedusa and then transferred to the island, others arrived. While the first rescue operation was still ongoing, another vessel sent an SOS and was reached by two coast guard boats 75 miles south-east of Lampedusa. Onboard were 68 migrants from sub-Sahara, including four women, who were transferred to Lampedusa.

    Another 150 migrants then landed shortly before 5 am on Monday on the island of Vendicari, a few miles from the coast of Siracusa, Sicily. (ANSAmed)
