Italy migrant issue polarises public

Italy working with Germany, France, and Malta to establish a quota system for distributing migrants rescued at sea. So far, they have been unable to get potential partner countries to agree.

The recent arrival of refugees and migrants on a tiny Italian island is polarising attitudes towards migration.

Lampedusa is a key arrival point for thousands of people trying to get to Europe.

In the past two days, hundreds of migrants have made the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean.

Al Jazeera’s Mohammed Jamjoom reports from Lampedusa.
