Migrants rescued by Italian Navy reach Sicily

Hundreds of people searching for a better life in Europe saved from overcrowded boats navigating rough seas.

    More than 800 migrants rescued off the coast of Italy disembarked on Saturday at a Sicilian port.

    They were found on Thursday off the coast of Lampedusa, packed onto four overcrowded boats that were struggling to keep afloat.

    Al Jazeera's Claudio Lavanga reports from Sicily.
