Six EU nations to take in migrants: Italy's PM

The Italian prime minister has also accused Interior Minister Matteo Salvini of being obsessed with blocking immigration.

by

    Italy's Prime Minister says six EU nations are willing to take in some of the 147 migrants stranded on a boat off Lampedusa.

    The boat was barred from docking but several people were brought to shore by the Italian coastguard for urgent medical attention.

    This followed a court ruling which said emergency support must be provided to the migrants on board the vessel.
