More than 900 people have arrived at the Italian port of Catania in Sicily after being rescued at sea by the Italian Coast Guard.

This comes amid a growing diplomatic row between Italy and France over the new Italian government’s refusal to allow a French rescue boat to dock.

France’s president has called that rejection cynical and irresponsible, and the Italian government has fired back.

Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from Rome.

Shon Won says:

To the racists/nationalists who're trying to masquerade as a patriots There's certain refugees that ARE scammers, then there are ones that are in a completely powerless situation they have no defense for. I have zero doubt that a great many of them would be more successful AND contribute more than some natives of the country that they're trying to seek refuge in. There's ZERO get out that there are CITIZENS of the country they're seeking asylum in, that could EASILY think of 5-10 ppl off the top of their head they know should be deported into a war zone and the country would be better off WITHOUT them. You MIGHT be one of them.
