    Freshly landed from Africa … Like some 13,000 others since the start of the year, they arrived illegally a few days ago. After boarding in Libya, they set foot here, on Lampedusa Island: nine kilometers long and two kilometers large at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. For the time being, they are being kept in this new centre …with space for 800 people. After spending weeks in the desert and several days at sea, they are receiving some much needed legal and medical assistance.
