Over 450 rescued migrants arrive at italian port of pozzallo


The Port of Pozzallo is the major port of the province of Ragusa on the Mediterranean coast of Sicily and is one of the most important harbours on the island. The port was initially designed for a volume of goods of only 500.000 tons a year but today it has risen to over 1.500.000 tons. The port is located at the western end of Pozzallo, which is 50 nautical miles (93 km) from Malta. It is well placed for connections to north Africa.

There is a catamaran service to Malta which runs throughout the year. The journey takes 90 minutes.
