  • Henry Ridgwell

More migrants have been brought ashore in southern Italy, after the visit Monday by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to an Italian warship patrolling the coastline. The U.N. chief said the recent migrant deaths had made the Mediterranean ‘a sea of misery’ - adding it was the worst humanitarian crisis since the Second World War.
