The carabinieri have located 24 migrants, one of whom is a minor, on the beach of Eraclea Minoa, at Cattolica Eraclea (Ag). They had arrived during the night and the migrants, believed to be Tunisian, immediately attempted to leave the beach covering up all traces of their arrival. The military found their boat, which was around 8 metres in length and thought to have departed from Lybia. It is believed that there were around 80 people in the group. The search operation is still in progress.
