      458 illegal immigrants intercepted by Italy

      PALERMO, Sicily, May 31: Italy on Saturday intercepted five boats
      carrying 450 illegal immigrants off the coast of three of its
      Mediterranean islands within a few hours, authorities said.

      The first boat, carrying 137 mostly Somali immigrants, was escorted
      into the port of Lampedusa after being caught at sea.

      The second boat, carrying 41 men, mostly Kurds, Pakistani and Indian
      nationals, was intercepted at sea off the same island. They were
      transferred to a temporary holding centre.

      At the end of the afternoon a third boat, with 134 African and Asian
      immigrants on board, was escorted to the same island. Meanwhile, 75
      immigrants landed on the southern coast of Sicily and police arrested
      a suspected smuggler among them.-AFP
