Austria sends 14 migrants, including Gambians, back to Italy

Reports confirmed that the migrants are citizens of Eritrea, Mali, Senegal and The Gambia, and were back to the Brenner train station across the Austrian border in Italy, where they were taken to the Italian authorities. 

Italy is experiencing an increase in migrant arrivals, up 59 per cent since the beginning of 2015 from the same period last year, according to Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

Many migrants view Italy as a first stop to reach target destinations in northern Europe.
