ITALY - Libyan Refugee relief

On 1 March the Italian government decided to provide humanitarian assistance to refugees who flock to the Libyan border with Tunisia. The UN says 10,000 of them would flow each day. Council President Silvio Berlusconi telephoned his British counterpart, James Cameron, and sought a European collaboration.

The Milan daily said that, pending the establishment of a joint force, relief sent by Italy are expected to arrive on site within two days.
