(ANSA) - Pozzallo (Ragusa), October 29 - A boat carrying 243 migrants landed Tuesday in the port of Pozzallo on the southern coast of Sicily after being assisted at sea by a patrol ship.
Four migrants were taken to hospital while the others were sent to stay in a gymnasium at a nearby sports field as the main reception centre in Pozzallo was already overcrowded with 480 newcomers to Italy.
The prefecture in the province of Ragusa, which includes the town of Pozzallo, is considering erecting a tent city to house the arriving migrants.
