Eritrean refugees protest in Lampedusa

Want their freedom

(ANSA) - Palermo, October 9 - A group of about 50 migrants from Eritrea staged protests in the streets of Lampedusa on Friday, the third consecutive day of demonstrations by the group asking to leave the island.
    The group chanted slogans including "freedom", "no finger prints", and "Al Jazeera contact us".
    On Thursday, divers rescued two men from the group who jumped into the water in protest.
    The group has been in a migrant reception centre on the island for about two weeks.
