Over 500 Refugees Arrive Italy Seeking Shelter

Italy took in over 500 refugees as two charity rescue ships were allowed to dock at ports.

The Geo Barents ship, operated by the Doctors Without Borders charity and which had 248 refugees on board, arrived in Salerno in the southwestern region of Campania on Sunday.

Al Jazeera added that on the other side of the country, another rescue vessel run by the charity SOS Humanity docked in the port city of Bari.

Italian interior ministry sources said the decision to allow the two ships to dock was based on the poor weather conditions and the risks faced by those on board.

But it also accuses the charity ships of making it easier for economic migrants to reach Italy and playing into the hands of people traffickers.
