Italy’s interior minister is to visit Tunis for talks aimed at stopping the flow of migrants to the Italian Mediterranean island of Lampedusa, the BBC informs. More than 15,000 people, mainly Tunisians but including some Libyans and Moroccans, have arrived since January’s uprising in Tunisia. An Italian naval vessel will begin ferrying some of the new arrivals off the island beginning on Wednesday. Interior Minister Roberto Maroni announced that he would visit Tunis on Wednesday to discuss the situation. The UN refugee agency says tensions are rising between migrants and the local population and there is “chaos and disorganisation”.
