A 6-metre small boat sank yesterday evening in the waters off Lampedusa.
Thirty-two migrants, including 3 women, were rescued by the CP327 patrol boat of the Coast Guard.
However, there are four missing, including two children aged 6 months and 6 years whose parents landed - together with the other 30 migrants - in Lampedusa.
The other two of whom there is no more news are two men.
In the meantime, this morning the Médecins Sans Frontières teams on board the Geo Barents carried out a second rescue operation at sea: 90 people, including over 35 minors and 5 women, traveling on a rubber dinghy.
There are now 164 survivors on board, including 14 women and around 50 unaccompanied minors.
The youngest of them is only 10 years old.
