Italy migrants rescued from inflatable boats by navy
Italy's navy has rescued 1,123 people from inflatable boats in the space of 24 hours, as clandestine migration from North Africa reaches record levels.
The latest migrants were found in eight boats and a barge about 120 miles (222km) south-east of Lampedusa.
Footage from the navy shows some of the rescues taking place.
