Malta guards Europe's gates against African immigrants

As an EU member it’s obligated to take in asylum-seekers. But as the flow of desperate Somalis and others hoping to reach Italy and farther has increased, it is making it harder than ever, drawing criticism from rights groups.

Already, he had made a grueling journey through the desert and then spent seven months in a crowded Libyan prison cell surrounded by sickness and death. Now, the rickety fishing boat carrying him and 167 other migrants was no match for the rough Mediterranean waters and he feared the current would pull it back to Libya?

    Negros back to Negroland. They should be happy and thankful to their Creator,who gave them fertile land and plenty of sunshine.And if they are lazy and dumb,is it really our fault? We would also be hungry,if our populations would quadruple in the last 40 years. From 230 millions in 1970 to more then 800 millions in subsaharian Africa,wow,that’s something for Guiness book of records.
