(NPR.ORG/SECTIONS/PARALLELS/2016/11/05/500669878/ITALY-BECOMES-A-LEADING-DESTINATION-FOR-MIGRANTS-MATCHING-GREECE) — Rome’s Via Ramazzini is a residential street with a sprawling park that belongs to the Italian Red Cross. That’s where newly arrived migrants are being sheltered in a tent camp.

Outside on the sidewalk, three young African men say they’re from Eritrea, here for the past two weeks after making a dangerous sea crossing.

Yarid Hailah, 25, says his boat, with 190 people aboard, was filling up with water. Ten hours after they left Libya, they were rescued. “Nobody died,” he says.
