Hundreds of lives of refugees fleeing from Libya rescued

We express our gratitude to all those involved from day to help refugees fleeing war in Libya. We express our gratitude for the fact that Italy continues to express its solidarity with those hours made all the refugees who are landing on Italian shores. We thank all the men and women committed to welcome and assist the Italian coast guard, all military and civilian services are doing in Lampedusa and other parts where they are transferred to the refugees arrived. In these times many refugee families are at sea with bated breath, I personally am in continuous contact with the Italian Coast Guard to report the requests for help that I arrive in my contacts I have always found these people available and professionals ready to intervene to save the lives of hundreds of human beings. Yesterday, the case of the 284 displaced Eritreans, Ethiopians and Somalis, a happy ending after day we were with bated breath for the critical conditions besetting their boat. The woman who gave birth in the boat later rescued by a helicopter providing the necessary assistance and sorry for the other woman who lost her baby. In these few minutes there are two barges loaded with other refugees fleeing from Tripoli, who are already receiving the relief we feel to thank all humanitarian workers involved in these hours, even men and women of the police and Interior Ministry . Italy shows her face in human and compassionate these days accept all these refugees from North Africa, we also know that there are many others without means still trapped in Libya, others fled to Egypt and Tunisia with the hope that any European state's welcome, evacuated from camps where they are now on the border between Egypt and Libya on the border between Tunisia and Libya. We call on the solidarity of the EU states in this dramatic moment, we are asking member states to accept refugees Eritreans, Ethiopians and Somalis who are in desperate conditions in Libya, Egypt and Tunisia.
