Lesbos: Dealing with a migrant crisis

60 migrants have been rescued from the sea near Libya by a Spanish aid boat – after they were spotted in a patched up rubber dinghy. But Italy’s hard line interior minister immediately declared he’d refuse permission for them to land there – saying “they can forget about arriving in an Italian port”. A hundred migrants – including three babies – are feared to have drowned yesterday on just one of the vessels attempting the risky journey to Europe, some of them heading for the Greek islands where overcrowded camps are struggling to cope. Jon Snow is in Lesbos.
