Italian Coast Guard Rescues 305 Migrants Off Lampedusa

6 children, 17 women are among those rescued in Mediterranean Sea.

Some 305 migrants were rescued from boat overnight in a "particularly complex" operation in the central Mediterranean, the Italian coast guard said Friday.
The migrants were intercepted about 20 nautical miles off the island of Lampedusa, Italy's southernmost part and a frequent landing point for Europe-bound migrants fleeing Libya or Tunisia.
The rescue, which required the intervention of two coast guard units, was "particularly complex" because the migrants were packed on an overcrowded vessel that risked capsizing, according to a statement.
It added that six children and 17 women were among the rescued.
Italy has grappled with mass arrivals of boat migrants for some time. Most are looking to travel on to wealthier countries in northern Europe.
Last year, there were around 64,500 landings, and there were another 604 sea arrivals in the Jan. 1-20 period, according to Interior Ministry data. -
