Reading Time: < 1 minute

The southern Italian island of Lampedusa registered 26-migrant boats landings in 24 hours on Sunday.

Twelve of those boats, carrying 263 asylum seekers, arrived in the evening.

As a result, over 1,000 people are at the island’s migrant hotspot, which in theory has a maximum capacity of 192.

A group of around 30 migrants, meanwhile, landed on a beach at Torre Salsa, in the Sicilian province of Agrigento, on Monday.

A group of six asylum seekers, including a one-year-old child, landed on a beach in Sardinia.
