The UN refugee agency is heaping pressure on Europe to help Italy defuse the "unfolding tragedy" of tens of thousands migrants flooding its shores.


The UN Agency said Italy needs more support as it deals with large numbers of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Africa.

Last week, Italy threatened to close its doors to people arriving on boats which were not flying Italian flags.

Since the beginning of the year, 83,650 people have reached Italy by sea, an increase of nearly 20 percent compared to the same period last year.
