Italian Navy ferrying rescued migrants to port

(ANSA) Taranto, September 3 - As many as 231 refugees arrived Wednesday at this southern port aboard a British container ship that plucked them from the Canal of Sicily, the Italian Navy said.
    Italian Navy vessels were ferrying the refugees, including 157 men, 37 women and 37 minors, to the port of Taranto from the 'Cma Cgm Magellan.' Doctors were boarding the Magellan to check on the health of the refugees who were to be housed in reception centres provided by city authorities.
