Eighty-two migrants have disembarked on the southern Italian island of Lampedusa after six days at sea.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Italy says it is allowing the ship, the Ocean Viking, to offload the migrants as most of those on board will be relocated to other EU countries.

The move signals a change of approach to migration from the new coalition which took office on Tuesday.

Ex-Interior Minister Matteo Salvini routinely blocked access to charity-run migrant vessels.
