Local Italian media as well as the ANSA and Adnkronos news agencies reported that several boats reached the coast of the Mediterranean island in the night from Monday (September 27) to Tuesday. The vast majority -- 686 -- of the arrivals came penned up on an old fishing boat and were able to go ashore.


Among the migrants -- believed to come from Morocco, Syria, Bangladesh and Egypt -- were women and children, ANSA reported, adding that the boat was believed to have set sail from Libya. Five of the passengers were reportedly brought to a hospital due to their medical condition.


A further 117 people arrived on the island aboard five vessels later Tuesday morning, according to news agency dpa. All of them were taken to an initial reception facility. ANSA reported that more than 1,000 are now at the facility including the new arrivals, although it only has capacity for 250 people.


"After a few days of bad weather, today with a calm sea the landings have restarted," ANSA quoted Lampedusa Mayor Toto Martello as saying. According to the mayor, the migrants would undergo identity and health checks before being transferred to a quarantine ship, which the Italian Interior Ministry in Rome announced it would send to Lampedusa, ANSA reported.
