More than a thousand migrants rescued in one day from the Mediterranean

Around 900 migrants have been rescued from flimsy boats in the Mediterranean.

The coast guard says at one point, 10 separate search and rescue operations were underway. In a statement, the Italian coastguard said a Norwegian ship working for the EU border agency Frontex and a vessel from the aid group SOS Mediterranee rescued migrants packed into four large rubber boats and six smaller vessels on Friday. More than 800 people rescued on Thursday and were brought ashore in the port of Augusta in southeastern Sicily. A Somali man, who had been among those rescued, died overnight on the ship.
