16 April, 14:24

    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, APRIL 16 - The European Commission said Thursday that the crisis caused by the flow of migrants from North Africa to southern Europe, especially Italy, is bad and is set to get worse. "The situation in the Mediterranean is serious and it will get worse in the coming weeks and months," said European Commission Spokesperson Natasha Bertaud. Italy, which has seen a sharp increase this year in the already big flow of migrants heading to its coast, has repeatedly complained it is not getting enough help from Europe. (ANSAmed).
