    ROME - Interior Minister Marco Minniti on Tuesday said migration is ''now under control'', speaking to state broadcaster Rai1's 'Uno Mattina' program.
    ''We have tried to govern the migration phenomenon which is now under control'', the minister said, noting that arrivals had dropped for the eighth consecutive month. ''In February ,we registered a 90% decrease on last February'', Minniti noted, stressing however that the ''situation in Africa is very delicate and Libya is in a condition of fragility''.
    He added that respecting the human rights is a ''fundamental concern'' for him.
    ''We are trying to manage the migration phenomenon, keeping security and humanity together'', he explained. ''It is possible to intervene in Africa, ensuring that those who are fleeing war are not taken to Europe by smugglers but by governments and NGOs through humanitarian corridors like the ones we are organizing''.
