Police placate tourists after Aeolian ferry malfunctions

(ANSA) - Lipari (Messina), August 20 - Law enforcement officers were forced to intervene to placate irate tourists after a malfunctioning ferry bearing 210 people was forced to cancel a scheduled trip amongst southern Italian Aeolian islands and organize alternative transport for the travellers. The Euroline ferry was en route from Lipari to Villa San Giovanni via Vulcano when it suffered mechanical problems. Being unable to continue its journey, the ferry was returned to shore and the managers organized for buses to accompany tourists to their original destination. Local Carabinieri military police were forced to intervene in order to placate the irate tourists amidst their complaints about the inconvenience. The archipelago of volcanic islands know as the Aeolian Islands are located north of Sicily. The eight isles, known as Le Isole Eolie in Italian, were formed by volcanic activity over the course of 260,000 years. Stromboli and Vulcano continue still today to display volcanic activity Amid eruptions and smoke.
