Asylum seekers in Italy face uncertain future

Thousands of migrants are housed at asylum-seeking centre in Sicily, waiting for government to decide their fate.

    About 4,000 migrants are housed at a former American military residence in Sicily, which has been converted into an asylum-seeking centre.

    Discontent is rife, with migrants saying that despite a 35-day maximum, they have been at the centre for more than a year, unsure when or where they will go.
