    Europe < Guardian

    Migrants from Africa and the Middle East risking increasingly perilous journeys into Europe has been propelled to tragic prominence with the news that around 700 people, possibly more, are feared drowned after two migrant boats sank. About 500 of those were seemingly murdered when traffickers rammed their vessel off Malta.

    According to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), almost 3,000 would-be migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean this year so far, against 700 for all of 2013.

    Italy ignores pleas, ends boat migrant rescue operation

    Rome (AFP) - Italy on Friday ignored the pleas of aid agencies and confirmed the end of its search and rescue operation "Mare Nostrum", responsible for saving tens of thousands of boat migrants stranded in the Mediterranean.

    "From tomorrow a new operation called 'Triton' begins," deputy prime minister and interior minister Angelino Alfano told journalists at a press conference, referring to a much more limited mission led by the EU border agency Frontex.

    "Mare Nostrum ends. Italy has done its duty."

    He said the government had spent some 114 million euros ($142 million) on the massive naval operation since two deadly shipwrecks in October last year left over 400 people dead.

    Default Ezadeen & Blue Sky M abandoned off the Italian coast

    Smugglers abandon migrant ship off Italy in new tactic to force rescue | World news | The Guardian

    The Ezadeen 009 - Fish food

    A “ghost ship” carrying hundreds of migrants was abandoned on Friday by its crew of smugglers in dangerous seas off the coast of southern Italy, in a move that a spokesman for the International Organisation for Migration said “takes the smuggling game to a whole new level”.

    The cargo ship Ezadeen, which set sail under a Sierra Leone flag from a Turkish port this week, was discovered drifting without a captain 40 nautical miles from the Italian coast. Italian coastguards were forced to intervene to prevent a disaster and possibly save the lives of the estimated 450 people on board, many of them thought to be Syrian refugees.

    “We are alone and we have no one to help us,” a migrant woman told officials by radio after the ship was asked to identify itself, coastguard spokesman Filippo Marini told an Italian radio station. Footage showed Italian officers landing on the Ezadeen by helicopter, before the ship was towed to Italy.

    The Ezadeen was the second vessel in four days to be found sailing without a crew. Earlier in the week, 800 migrants on the Blue Sky M, a Moldovan-registered ship, were rescued by Italian coastguards when it was discovered sailing without an active crew five miles off the coast.

    The two incidents have left observers of migrant routes in the Mediterranean fearing that people-smugglers have found a new and ruthless way of working in the area despite a recent decision to scale back Italian rescue operations.
