At least 1250 refugees and migrants were rescued by the Italian navy in four different operations on Christmas Day.

They were taken onto the Navy ship ‘Etna’ where they received medical check-ups before being transferred to the Sicilian port of Pozzallo.

While onboard Etna, a Nigerian mother gave birth to her baby, with the help of Italian medical staff.

On another boat, Italian emergency services discovered the body of a man who had died during the journey.
