Narrow escape for African migrants

Crisis on Italian island of Lampedusa worsens daily with influx of fresh boat people from Libya.

    About 400 African migrants coming from Libya were rescued after their boat was tossed against rocks off the tiny Italian island Lampedusa on Sunday. The Mediterranean island's crisis worsens daily with the growing number of people from Libya arriving there with hopes of making it to Europe.
