Forty-seven migrants rescued in the Mediterranean have been allowed to disembark from an Italian patrol boat on the island of Sicily.
They are reported to come from Tunisia and sub-Saharan Africa.
They arrived hours before a planned ceremony in Sicily marking the closure of what was once the biggest migrant reception centre in Europe.
Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is expected to attend the event.
The centre, at Mineo, once housed more than 4,000 migrants. It is now empty, with the remaining migrants transferred to smaller centres.
On Monday, a German charity, Sea-Eye, rescued 44 people off the Libyan coast.
It is working with the Maltese authorities to transfer them to their custody.
Malta allows a group of 65 migrants rescued off Libya to disembark on its territory.
The NGO-run ship the Alex, which has 41 rescued migrants on board, has docked in Lampedusa.
