Thu Jul 7, 2016 21:43:14

Italian police detained four alleged people smugglers, who were picked up Tuesday with 491 migrants rescued by the Italian navy as they tried to reach the country by sea.

Police were waiting at the Sicilian port of Pozzallo when the Italian navy ship “Driade” arrived carrying migrants, including 83 women and three minors, rescued from three dinghies and a small boat found sailing in precarious conditions in the Mediterranean.

Photographs taken by migrants on the boats helped police identify the alleged smugglers.

Police said the four alleged smugglers were from Bangladesh, Ghana, Togo and Senegal.
