Migrant boat crossings from North Africa to Europe, arrivals and deaths in the Mediterranean are continuing to fall, Italy’s hardline interior minister Matteo Salvini tweeted on Monday.
“I have the data to hand. Fewer crossings, fewer landings, fewer victims at sea,” Matteo Salvini wrote in a tweet.
“This is the way to crush the illegal immigration racket. The Mediterranean must go back to being a sea where no innocent blood is shed,” Salvini added.
