• Italy rescues 4,000 migrants in 2 days


    ROME: Italy’s coastguard said Tuesday it had rescued some 4,000 migrants in the past two days, adding to fears of a fresh push to reach Europe via that route as the number of migrants landing in Greece sharply recedes. On Tuesday, 2,154 migrants were brought to safety in the Strait of Sicily between Italy and North Africa, on top of the 1,850 rescued in the area on Monday, the coastguard said.
