164 Syrians land in Siracusa

Siracusa, August 28 - The Coast Guard in Syria on Wednesday rescued a boat carrying 164 people who said they were Syrian nationals. The refugees, including 50 children, were taken to the port of Siracusa. Many were reportedly dehydrated and said they had been at sea for 10 days. Overall 504 migrants landed on the coasts around Siracusa in the past 24 hours. Most of them were Syrians fleeing the war. The Italian interior ministry said Wednesday that a total of 2,872 Syrians arrived on Italian coasts in the first eight months of this year as war is raging in their country.
