400 immigrants land in Sicily and hit the streets

As many as 400 irregular immigrants landed in Agrigento in Sicily today. It is reported that a ship left them a few metres away from the sandy beach of Palma di Montechiaro.

Italian media are reporting that the immigrants landed at around noon and flocked to the countryside and on the streets in groups. Some ended up on the highway, where they started stopping cars asking for water.

Intensive searches for the migrants are underway by the police, carabinieri and soldiers, even by helicopter.

This was the highest number of immigrants ever to land on the shore in Agrigento.

It is reported that 52 of these immigrants landed on the island of Linosa, where they were stopped by the Police and are expected to be taken to Lampedusa.
